Louth Contemporary Music Society has the great honor to present the work of legendary composer and pianist Christian Wolff in Ireland. Christian Wolff is the last surviving member of the New York School of composers (John Cage, Morton Feldman and Earle Brown) who revolutionized music in the 20th century.
For 60 years, Christian Wolff has been at the center of composing’s avant-garde. On 30 May 2015 Christian will make his Irish performing debut* alongside his friends and longtime collaborators: the outstanding percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky and incredible cellist Rohan de Saram. The trio will offer a ground breaking evening of Wolff’s music.

In a pre-performance interview at 7.30pm with Paul Griffiths, composer Christian Wolff will discusses his work and his close connection to the avant-garde, both in America and the UK, and his association with major artists such as John Cage and Morton Feldman.
