RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra 2013-2014
THE MUSIC OF SHAUN DAVEY
MONDAY 17 MARCH, 8pm
NATIONAL CONCERT HALL
In Celebration of St Patrick's Day:
Granuaile [45'] & The Brendan Voyage [41']
Back by popular demand following the 2013 sell-out with the RTÉ NSO, The Brendan Voyage makes a welcome return to the NCH. Shaun Davey's powerful music drama, vividly depicting St Brendan's journey from Ireland to the New World in a tiny leather boat, will be performed once again by master uilleann piper Liam O'Flynn.
The powerful double bill also features the incomparable singing of Rita Connolly in Granuaile, Davey's 'wild and magnificent' (The Observer) song cycle based on the life of Grace O'Malley, the 16th century Irish woman chieftain, which includes the classic 'Ripples in the Rockpools'.
