Sonorities 2007 proudly hosts one of the most significant musical events in Ireland in recent decades: a double-concert visit by Ensemble Recherche, one of the greatest new music ensembles in the world. This German ensemble has given over 400 premieres, produced over 30CDs, and has a repertoire extending from the 7th century to the present day. Ensemble Recherche will present two concerts: a 60th birthday tribute concert of music by the legendary Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino, and a programme of new music by European composers written for the ensemble.

Sonorities 2007 also presents an exciting mix of orchestral and chamber music, as well as electronic music performed in the unique Sonic Lab, which features symmetric three-dimensional surround- sound, at the Sonic Arts Research Centre. Featured musicians and ensembles include: The Ulster Orchestra, The Smith Quartet, Miso Music Portugal, Mark Applebaum, George Lewis and Barry Guy. The full Sonorities programme will be available in March 2007 and tickets for all events will be available from mid-March.
