The Irish Chamber Orchestra celebrates is its first concerts in Limerick in seven months in this, its 50th anniversary year with a line-up of firm favourites. Finghin Collins, one of Ireland’s star pianists joins the orchestra along with ace accordionist, Dermot Dunne.
The iconic Brandenburg Concertos remain a firm favourite and No. 3 is a baroque roller-coaster from start to finish. RTĒ Lyric fm generously commissioned a new work, Luasc by Ryan Molloy, to celebrate 50 years of the Irish Chamber Orchestra. Finghin Collins performs Mozart’s lyrical and very playful Piano Concerto No. 12, full of thrills, spills and personality. Cinema Paradiso inspired some of Morricone's most touching, melodic music which earned him a 1990 BAFTA. Bacalov’s gorgeous Il Postino score won the 1994 Oscar - the music is sweet, sad but unmistakably Italian. Happy Birthday Variations with an ICO twist is followed by the hauntingly beautiful Oblivion from Astor Piazzolla’s film score, Enrique V. Spicy rhythms and a fiendish melody keep Libertango at the forefront of modern tango. Dermot Dunne on accordion with gasp-inducing virtuosity, navigates his instrument with a light touch, warmth, and utter charm.
