Darragh Morgan Album Launch
Darragh Morgan is a versatile violinist with an impressive number of professional recordings to his credit. This performance will round-off what has been a busy month for Morgan, especially with his upcoming Iranian tour with the Fidelio Trio. The album will feature a variety of contemporary electroacoustic composers, and will no doubt make full use of Morgan’s critically-acclaimed extended techniques.
