[email protected] Live: Irlandiani - Carina Drury, baroque cello

Sunday, 14 November 2021, 12.00pm

Carina Drury - baroque cello

with Norah O'Leary - cello continuo
and Fiona Gryson - Irish harp

This is a live performance of Irlandiani, the debut album from Irish baroque cellist Carina Drury. Picturing the musical life of early 18th Century Ireland, the concert 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 Irish composers of the day.
Using a combination of historical and traditional instruments, this programme combines Irish tunes from The Neal Collection – the first ever printed collection of Irish music from 1724, and tunes by the famous Irish harpist and composer Turlough O’Carolan – side by side with cello sonatas by the Italian composers Francesco Geminiani and Lorenzo Bocchi, both of whom spent periods of time living in Ireland in the 18th century.
