Irlandiani is a programme from the debut album from the Irish baroque cellist Carina Drury. Picturing the musical life of early 18th Century Ireland, the album explores the influence of Irish traditional music on Italian baroque composers living in Ireland at the time, and how a fashion for the Italian baroque style also influenced the Irish composers of the day. The trio explore favourite Irish tunes from The Neal Collection – the first ever printed collection of Irish music from 1724 – side by side with cello sonatas by Francesco Geminiani and Lorenzo Bocchi, both of whom lived in Ireland in the 18th century.

Carina Drury has held a lifelong love for music and her cello playing has been  described by BBC Radio 3 as ‘singing across the centuries’. Her love for 18th  century music took hold while she was a student at the Royal Academy of Music  where she was twice awarded the Early Music Prize. She toured as principal cello  with the European Union Baroque Orchestra in 2010, and now regularly works as a  soloist, chamber musician and continuo player with historical instrument ensembles  in the UK and Ireland. Carina has hugely enjoyed delving into Geminiani, Bocchi  and O’Carolan’s music for her debut album Irlandiani, thanks to Arts Council of England funding.
