Camerata Ireland brings together great Irish music-making with their musicians and two Irish composers - John Field and the young Derry composer Seán Doherty. There will be two Russian masterworks also - Shostakovich Concerto for piano and trumpet - featuring the Northern Irish trumpeter Niall Keatley - and Barry Douglas on piano. Finishing the concert will be the radiant Serenade for Strings by Tchaikovsky.
“This is a mix of well-known and new music to lift the sprints and look forward to the next chapter in our country, after the darkness of the past months.” Barry Douglas
