Fidelio Trio and Ben Dwyer Performances

My composition Anois 's Aris, originally written, in collaboration with Judith Ring, for medieval psaltery and electronics, will be performed by Irish composer and guitarist Ben Dwyer, in a new guitar arrangement of the work. The concert will take place in the Irish Georgian Society House on South William St on March 26th, as part of the AIC Irish Composers on Irish Music Series.

I am also especially pleased that the renowned Irish ensemble The Fidelio Trio will be performing my piano trio Scenes in the National Concert Hall on April 12th.

Gamelan Concerts in Dublin

On April 17th-18th, we are holding two nights of contemporary compositions for gamelan in the National Concert Hall's Kevin Barry Room. The first evening will see the Dublin debut of the quintet of Irish gamelan players who performed at the Yogyakarta International Performing Arts Festival in Java last November. The second evening sees the the latest performance from Gamelan Nua, an ensemble made up entirely of composers, who performed their debut concerrt to a full house in January 2013.

Both concerts feature special guests, with Spanish shadow-puppet artist Clementina Kura-Kura coming over to collaborate with the quintet, while the Gamelan Nua concert will feature outstanding Irish vocalist Catr´┐Żona O'Leary, presenting their collaborative project featuring new gamelan arrangements of Irish and American folk songs.

Gamelan concerts of more traditional Javanese repertoire are also on the calendar, with the UCD Gamelan Orchestra performing in Christchurch Cathedral on Thursday April 23rd at 8pm, and both classes of the National Concert Hall Gamelan Orchestras performing in the Kevin Barry Room on May 22nd at 8.30pm.
