Schubert Death and the Maiden arr. For strings. D810 in D Minor

The orchestra are back on the road with a regional tour visiting venues in Limerick, Kilkee, Co. Clare, Newport, Co. Mayo and Monaghan directed by Katherine Hunka from the violin. Vivaldi’s inflammable brilliance first ignited with L'estro armonico or The Genius of Harmony, a set of twelve concertos and, one of the most influential of its day. No. 1 oozes creativity and imagination performed by ICO soloists. Bach’s virtuosic Concerto for 2 Violins in D minor is one of his best-loved works and will be performed by ICO’s Katherine Hunka and Nicola Sweeney. Schubert’s Death and the Maiden, one of his finest works, makes for thought-provoking, refreshing listening combined with the sheer energy of the ICO’s music-making. Malachy Robinson’scinematic new work (commissioned for this tour) invokes music both old and new, and green men both woodland and alien!
