The Stones of Life

Irish Chamber Orchestra 
Killian Farrell Conductor 
Sharon Carty Artist in Association / Mezzo Soprano 

Prokofiev Symphony No. 1 in D major Classical, Op. 25 
Deirdre Gribbin The Stones of Life  
Mahler Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen, from Rückert Lieder  
Mozart Symphony No.41, K.551, C major Jupiter 

What is structure without soul? Prokofiev’s sparkling first symphony plays with form, riffing on the old while playing with the new. And Mozart’s Jupiter is nothing less than a knock-you-off-your-feet perfect classical symphony – with all the awe-inspiring splendour you could want. But it’s Mahler’s big, gorgeous sigh of grief and loss that gives this programme its pulse, and Deirdre Gribbin’s Stones of Life is the beating heart of this whole bold, beautiful night.
