TOTEMIC – VIOLA & PERCUSSION
March 29 at 8:00 pm
NATHAN SHERMAN viola | ALEX PETCU percussion
|KATE MOORE||Iarann (world premiere)|
|BENEDICT SCHLEPPER-CONNOLLY||One Thing I Know|
This programme, based around Luciano Berio’s Naturale, is a world of hypnotic sounds, street vendor songs, yearning melodies, and joyous dances. Berio’s work uses Sicilian folk music as its inspiration, and is a reflection on the joys, and often harsh realisms of life. TOTEMIC by Ian Wilson is a new perspective on the Irish folk idiom, and a contrast to the gamelan sounds of One Thing I Know by Benedict Schlepper-Connolly. This concert will include the world premiere of Iarann by the Dutch-based Australian composer Kate Moore whose works are engaged with what lies beneath the surface. Iarann is inspired by St. Brigid.
Tickets in attendance: €20 / €18 | Students (full-time) €6 | MfG Friends €16
