They Danced When the Musicians Played

Wednesday, 17 August 2022, 7.30pm

Innovative musicians ‘…the virtuosic Fidelio Trio…’ Sunday Times, and traditional musician Cillian Vallely of Lúnasa renown, collaborate in a unique new set of works for uilleann pipes, violin, cello and piano. With roots in Irish traditional music these boundary-busting new works are vivid musical evocations inspired by portraits of traditional musicians by iconic artist John B. Vallely. Celebrated Irish composers who have specially created new music for this include; Shaun Davey, Neil Martin, Linda Buckley, Niall Vallely, Irene Buckley and Rose Connolly.

The programme also features leading Irish contemporary composer David Fennessy’s ‘The blue-eyed lassie’ from his recent Fidelio Trio commission and two works by the late Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin specially dedicated to the trio; (must be more) Crispy! and Fidelio Unsung. American composer David Gompper's Fiinnegan's Wake is an additional evocative rendition for violin and piano.
