For Red Poppy, Crash Ensemble presents work by co-founders and composers of the innovative Bang on a Can music collective; David Lang, Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe. All of the pieces performed at the event were written for Crash. Gordon’s Cake, Lang’s super chill and Wolfe’s A Wild Furze were all composed in honour of Crash Ensemble’s 20th anniversary in 2017. Gordon's Dry was commissioned by the Kilkenny Arts festival for the group. Crash's recording of Lang's Forced March can be heard on his recent album release Writing on Water.
