July Master Class Series: Peter Whelan, bassoon

Thursday, 30 July 2020, 2.30pm

We are delighted to announce a short series of masterclasses open to Irish students this July. While the nation gradually emerges from restrictions, we are pleased to be able to offer these remote masterclasses with exceptional Irish musicians.

Each masterclass will be live streamed on the National Concert Hall’s Youtube, and there will be an opportunity for you to ask all your burning questions to each of the musicians at the end of each of the masterclasses.

Irish-born Peter Whelan is among the most exciting and versatile exponents of historical performance of his generation, with a remarkable career as a conductor, keyboardist and solo bassoonist. He is Artistic Director of the Irish Baroque Orchestra and founding Artistic Director of Ensemble Marsyas.

As conductor, Peter has a passion for exploring and championing neglected music from the Baroque era. Recent projects funded by The Arts Council (Ireland) and Creative Scotland involved recreating and staging live performances of choral and symphonic music from eighteenth-century Dublin and Edinburgh. This led to his award-winning disc ‘Edinburgh 1742’ for Linn Records and his 2017 reconstruction of the ‘Irish State Musick’ in its original venue of Dublin Castle.
