Lin ndonovsk leads a diverse career as soloist, chamber musician, orchestral player, collaborator and educator. Quickly gaining recognition internationally as a fearless and versatile artist, she has collaborated and performed with Crash Ensemble (Ireland), Australian Chamber Orchestra, Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), s t a r g a z e, Southern Cross Soloists (Aus)
and eighth blackbird (USA). She is critically acclaimed for her interpretation of new music, having closely collaborated with Louis Andriessen, Brett Dean, Ann Cleare, Donnacha Dennehy, Michael Gordon, David Lang, Thomas Ades, Anthony Pateras and Nick Roth. Rolling Stone Magazine hailed her performance of Bun-Ching Lam’s piccolo concertino at the Bang On A Can Summer Festival at Mass MoCA as “superbly played, (ranging) from sustained ‘somebody-please-get-that-tea-kettle’ squeaks to the flit and flutter of its beautifully lilting trills...” Recent performance credits include the European premiere of Dean’s flute concerto ‘Siduri Dances’ with the Deutsches Kammerorchester, recitals at the Tokyo Experimental Festival, and guest appearances with s t a r g a z e across Germany. In the 2017/2018 season, she will be joining the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and Southern Cross Soloists (AU) as Guest Principal Flutist, as well as performing in the latest opera by Dennehy/Walsh with Crash Ensemble.

In Dialogue is a concert series showcasing new works by composers from the Irish Composers' Collective in which each concert features one work from a composer central to the canon of modern music and new works by ICC members presented in dialogue with this work. Lectures & workshops will run concurrently to the concert series.

This talk is connected to and will be followed by a concert on 13th December with 6 new works for wind quintet by ICC composers written in dialogue with Samuel Barber's Summer Music.
