Golden Beginnings | Kaleidoscope Night

Golden Beginnings | Kaleidoscope Night

Wednesday, 6 March 2019, 8.00pm

The Kaleidoscope series' offering for March is something of a musical marriage of Cork and Dublin. The Ortús Festival is a chamber music festival in Cork City and County artistically directed by two young Irish musicians, cellist Sinéad O'Halloran and violinist Mairéad Hickey. Presenting the 4th chapter of the festival on March 1st to 3rd 2019, a number of Ortús musicians will bookend that experience with a visit to the Kaleidoscope stage. "Denier" by Ian Wilson was the festival's commissioned world premiere work in 2017 and this quintet for flute, two violins and two cellos will form the centrepiece of the evening, framed by violin duos by Bartok (performed by Siobhan Doyle & Brendan Garde), a cello duo by Couperin (Sinead O Halloran & Aoife Nic Athlaoich) and a solo baroque flute work by Marin Marais (performed by Fiona Kelly). A rare cinematic treat mirrors this chamber music wizardry- a special shortened edit of Emer Reynolds' multi award winning documentary, "The Farthest” about the "Voyager" spacecraft, will be screened, with live music underscore by Kaleidoscope curator and cellist, Lioba Petrie and guitarist Cameron Doyle.
