Event abstract

The Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) in Dublin is Ireland's archive and resource centre for new music, supporting the work of composers on the Island. Pianist Dr. Mary Dullea has been uncovering the connections and characteristics of the hundreds of works in the piano catalogue, deepening understandings of the positions this music and these composers hold in Irish music and increasingly, further afield.
