SHOSTAKOVICH, FROST, & GLASS

Katherine Hunka Director/Violin
Fiachra Garvey Piano
Colm Byrne Trumpet

Shostakovich Concerto No. 1 in C minor for Piano, Trumpet and Strings, Op. 35
Paul Frost Trip
Philip Glass Symphony No. 3

Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1 is full of burlesque swagger and impish sardonic humour as the work unfolds into a climactic, carnival-atmosphere tumble. Fiachra Garvey performs this light-hearted infectious work enhanced by a solo trumpet performed by Colm Byrne. Symphony No.3 by Philip Glass is one of his most performed works. It pulses and breathes like a living being as ICO create a truly exhilarating experience. In between, we feature a world premiere of Trip a new commission by Paul Frost inspired by his own daily thought processes and the wandering mind. It is generously supported by the Arts Council.
