G Mulvey Great Women (world première)

The new liveried Dublin International Chamber Music Festival is proud to present the world première of Gráinne Mulvey’s Great Women, a work specially commissioned by the Festival with funds from The Arts Council and which has given our second day its focus on women composers and performers.

Performed by soprano Elizabeth Hilliard, a champion of the composer’s work, Great Women is a celebration of the strong, remarkable Irish women who have helped shape the social and political landscape through their striving for equality and liberation. Amongst those whose words are set are pioneering patriots, Countess Markievicz and Rosie Hackett, alongside such equally inspiring contemporary figures as our former Presidents Mary Robinson and Mary McAleese.

World première preceded by online launch of CD recording of Great Women

Presented in association with the Office of Public Works
Supported by Culture Ireland
