Arias from Bach Cantatas and Swedish Folk Songs
The Swedish soprano Maria Keohane has a repertoire which spans a wide spectrum of music styles from baroque to contemporary, including opera, chamber music and oratorios. Her busy schedule takes her all over the world. Last season she performed at the Vienna Konzerthaus, the West Cork Chamber Music Festival, at the Handel Festspiele in Halle, as well as Mozart’s Requiem at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow.
Founded by the Irish harpsichordist and organist Malcolm Proud and the Swiss violinist Maya Homburger, Camerata Kilkenny is a period instrument group specialising in the performance of Baroque music although many of its programmes combine 17th and 18th century music with the works of contemporary composers. They have performed at all the major festivals in Ireland and at prestigious venues throughout Europe. In 2018 they will tour, with Uilleann Piper David Power, to Finland, Belgium, Germany and France.
