This recital celebrates the songs of Irish composer John F. Larchet (1884-1967), who was an influential figure in Irish music in the 20th Century. The complete songs were performed together for the first time recently in a project spearheaded by Irish Songmakers, and include such gems ‘A Stoirin Bán’, ‘An Ardglass Boat Song’, and ‘Padraic the Fiddilier’, performed by leading Irish singers Raphaela Mangan and Gavan Ring, accompanied by Niall Kinsella. Dr. Larchet was a teacher at RIAM and UCD for many decades and taught a generation of Irish composers.
