The contemporary music series NewSoundWorlds is holding a weekend of concerts hosted by the Centre Culturel Irlandais (CCI) in Paris on 25 to 27 October. The festival focusses on the music of Irish composers.
On Thursday, 25 October, at 7.30pm in the CCI, the RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet combine with the pianist Hugh Tinney to perform music by Raymond Deane, Frederick May, David Flynn, Siobhán Cleary, Aloys Fleishmann and Donnacha Dennehy.
Tinney performs again on Friday, 26 October, this time at Irish Embassy and with the violinist Catherine Leonard — this is an invitation only event. The duo will play music by Irish composers Ian Wilson, Raymond Deane and Siobhán Cleary as well as Maurice Ravel.
Returning to the CCI on Saturday, 27 October, at 7.30pm, a specially formed group comprising Kate Ellis (cello), William Dowdall (flute), Paul Roe (clarinet), Nick Roth (saxophone), Joanne Quigley (violin), Cora Venus Lunny (viola) and Izumi Kimura (piano) will perform.
