“[Their] subtle attention to detail allows us to enjoy the thing that really matters the multitude of feelings that music can evoke in us all.” - Totally Dublin

In December 2018, we were tremendously excited to present Jóhann Jóhannsson’s Orphée in a new arrangement by Aran O’Grady. For the first time, our ensemble performed newly commissioned compositions, in response to Jóhann’s life and work. We were honoured to have the blessing of his team to present this concert, as well as the imprimatur of the Embassy of Iceland. for Totally Dublin for Totally Dublin

“A beautiful night of music at the Unitarian Church from @MusicGlasshouse playing Jóhann Jóhannsson’s Orphée in its entirety as well as some other works. It’s been a heavy and somber week. Tonight felt like a fitting soundtrack of grief infused with some hope.”

The @MusicGlasshouse Jóhann Jóhannsson show last night was such a beautiful immersive elegiac tribute & celebration. Five new pieces responding to JJ's music by young Irish composers each a highlight.”
