Première Of Linda Buckley's Cosán de Solas Gealaí Buí

The première of Linda Buckley’s new work Cosán de Solas Gealaí Buí (a commission by RTÉ Lyric FM) took place at the Lá Ceoil Love:Live Music event in Meeting House Square last week, and can be seen here (in the second of the video clips at about forty minutes in) on the RTÉ websiteperformed by members of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, DIT Traditional Music Ensemble, with Seán Mac Erlaine on sax and piper Mick O’Brien. The piece is described as following ‘the sonic thread of Irish traditional music, journeying from symphonic folk to electro acoustic and embodying both the conservative and the radical; and aims to explore the dichotomy of orality and literacy through the opposition of classical and traditional music as well as adding a third layer to this conversation, the digital interface.’
