Sunday November 17th

When musician Dáirine Ní Mheadhra discovered how few Irish language art songs were in existence, she set about commissioning composers and poets to create Tionscadal Na Namhrán Ealaíne Gaeilge. Working with composers including Jonathan Nangle, John Kinsella, Fuhong Shi and Jennifer Walshe, tonight we hear some of those songs set to traditional and contemporary texts performed by soloists including Gavan Ring and Anna Devin (pictured). We’ll also hear the Dudok Quartet Amsterdam explore Haydn’s inventive String Quartets Op.20.


Sunday November 24th

Composer Avet Terterian was an important musical figure in 20th century Armenia, who experimented with electronics and atonality. He was also influenced by folk music and ancient liturgical music and tonight we hear a new recording of works including the Symphony No.3 scored for scored for orchestra with Armenian folk instruments, duduks and zurnas. We’ll also hear chamber works by Erno Dohnanyi in a new recording from pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin (pictured) with the Takacs Quartet.


Watch Jennifer Walshe's The Site of an Investigation 

Dublin-born composer Jennifer Walshe was recently elected to the highly prestigious German Akademie der Kunste, the first Irish-born member. A unique voice in contemporary music composition and performance, tonight we’ll hear Walshe’s The Site of an Investigation, the world premiere performance recorded at New Music Dublin earlier this year. Featuring Walshe on vocals with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jean Deroyer, the piece considers our contemporary predicament and takes in microplastics, Facebook likes, grief, precarity, interplanetary colonisation, artificial intelligence and loss.
