Lunchtime Series Concert – Christopher Moriarty & Gabrielė Dikčiūtė
29 October 2019
We are honoured to be featuring Christopher Moriarty (Clarinet) & Gabrielė Dikčiūtė (Cello) for our second lunchtime event! Award winning clarinettist and composer Christopher Moriarty is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after young artists of his generation. He is joined by cellist Gabriele Dikčiūtėf for an exciting programme of contemporary music. Christopher is passionate about the creation and performance of new works featuring the clarinet, expanding upon the Irish repertoire of works for his instrument and bringing them to new audiences. His music has been performed both nationally and internationally, with premieres in Dublin, London, New York and Stockholm.
We are delighted to have him join our classical/contemporary music concerts in Galway!
Gabriele Dikciute came to Ireland to start her Bachelor Degree in cello performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. In 2017 she was invited to play a piece Snow In June for percussion ensemble and cello solo by Chinese composer Tan Dun in New York University. Gabriele has a keen interest in Baroque music and often performs with her ensemble Westland Baroque. She recently gave a solo performance of Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.
