E-Bow - World Premier

World premiere of E-Bow, composed by Dave Flynn and joined by Galway's ConTempo Quartet.

About this event

Galway Music Residency (GMR) in association with Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) presents the World Premiere of E-Bow, a new work by Irish composer Dave Flynn for string quartet and electric guitar, performed by Galway’s ConTempo Quartet and the composer himself. The work was co-commissioned by long-term commissioning partners Galway Music Residency and Galway City Council.

The work will be housed in a wider event which will include other musical performances, talks and an interview with the composer Dave Flynn.

Praised in the New York Times for the "power and intensity" of his music, composer and virtuoso guitarist Dave Flynn works across several genres and some of the world's best musicians. His music is acclaimed internationally and has been performed in prestigious venues such as MoMA and Ireland's National Concert Hall by ensembles including the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Crash Ensemble and RTÉ Concert Orchestra. Formed in 1995 in Bucharest, ConTempo Quartet is recognised as one of the most exciting and vibrant chamber ensembles performing today. The quartet was chosen as GMR’s Ensemble in Residence in 2003 and continues to captivate audiences throughout the city and county with its repertoire of classical, contemporary, folk and traditional music.

This event is supported by Galway City Council & the Arts Council.
