Irish Chamber Orchestra – Voices From the Edge

Christ Church Cathederal, Wednesday 13th February 2019

The Irish Chamber Orchestra's February concert explores music through many voices and centuries…

In Voices from the Edge, ICO's Principal Conductor Jörg Widmann offers a unique insight into Beethoven's enigmatic Grosse Fuge, his towering masterpiece of fuge and counterpoint. Even today, the Fuge remains one of the most incredible and most modern pieces of music ever written. Movie composer Eric Korngold's seldom heard Symphonic Serenade dazzles in optimism and luxurious sounds. In Widmann's elegiac Aria for Strings, the instruments are the vocal protagonists testing their limits at the stratospheric heights and profound depths of their ranges. Finally, Mendelssohn's String Symphony No. 9 is one of the best known of his 13 string symphonies. Aside from the Baroque and Swiss evocations, one can only be amazed at the accomplishment of the 14-year-old composer.

“At one with Widmann's direction, ICO's support is elegant and trenchant” – Irish Independent.

Dublin Guitar Symposium – Back to the Future

TU Dublin

Expanding on the success of the inaugural Dublin Guitar Symposium, this event will gather some of the most distinguished and highly regarded scholars and musicians of the classical guitar. Over the past twenty years or so, an explosion in classical guitar research has been gradually redressing the balance for what James Tyler described as a 'neglected' instrument. It is now understood that musical practices, and to some extent the study of musical practices, of the classical guitar are technically, aesthetically and culturally mediated by the instrument. The theme of the Dublin Guitar Sympo
