The voice and cello are a natural pairing and with the addition of piano creating a harmonious link, it is surprising how few composers have written for the combination. Hear piano and voice, as well as all three instruments together, in this season’s opening concert which features Gemma Ní Bhriain, Cahal Masterson & Yseult Cooper Stockdale. Schubert’s Auf der Storm was originally written for tenor and horn, but was performed with cello for the composer’s memorial service. This beautiful and unique work features in this programme, alongside Berlioz’s less familiar gem La Captive.
As society reopens following the Covid-19 crisis, we want to ensure safety and comfort. All concerts take place in St Peter’s Church of Ireland, Drogheda and will have restricted numbers. The performances will last approximately 1 hour in duration and be performed without an interval. Tickets are €20 and can be booked through Droichead Arts Centre on 041 9833946 or www.droichead.com with further information available from www.droghedaclassicalmusic.com
