As part of Sounds from a Safe Harbour 2019, the extraordinary ‘Minimalist Dream House’ quartet of Katia and Marielle Labèque, Bryce Dessner (member and founder of The National) and David Chalmin (La Terre Invisible) present the Irish premiere of ‘Don’t Fear The Light’, an exploration of minimalist compositions by new composers.
