Irlandiani at East Cork Early Music Online
Filmed in the beautiful Methodist Church in historic Kinsale, 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.
The online concert is available online until midnight on Sunday 12th December.
