Masters of Tradition Festival and National Heritage Week

Masters of Tradition Festival and National Heritage Week

Sheelagh Dempsey brings us this week's Gig Guide including the Masters Of Tradition Festival in Bantry, some events happening as part of National Heritage Week and a meeting of Irish and Polish folk music in Co Meath

 

Sunday August 16th

The Croatian composer and conductor Igor Kuljeric composed his Glagolitic Requiem in the mid-1990s, as the country emerged from a war of independence. The music is a celebration of the Croatian church and folk music traditions passed down since the Middle Ages, and we'll hear a new recording with the Bavarian Radio Chorus and Munchner Rundfunkorchester conducted by Ivan Repusic. We’ll also explore a symphonic portrait of daily existence in Stalinist Russia, the Babi Yar Symphony No. 13 by Shostakovich recorded by the Russian National Orchestra conducted by Kirill Karabits.


Sunday August 23rd

Tenor James Gilchrist describes solitude as a state of being that is harder to achieve and endure than we expect. It's also the title and concept of his latest album, a recital of introspective songs that includes Under Alter’d Skies by Jonathan Dove and we’ll hear excerpts tonight. We’ll also explore the first complete recording of Carl Nielsen’s incidental music for The Mother, a play in seven scenes by Helge Rode.

Watch - RTÉ Concert Orchestra perform Gerald Barry and Julia Wolfe with Bang on a Can

The RTÉ Concert Orchestra conducted by Ilan Volkov performs Gerald Barry's Viola Concerto with the violist for whom it was written, Lawrence Power. A commission by Britten Sinfonia and RTÉ, it was recorded live at New Music Dublin 2020. We’ll also hear Julia Wolfe’s Flower Power composed for orchestra and the eclectic Bang on a Can All-Stars, a work inspired by a radical revolutionary moment - the late 1960's - a time when experimental ideas and questions permeated all parts of the political, social, and artistic landscapes.


Watch - Cleary, O'Leary and Guðmundsson with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra

Watch and listen below to diverse music by Irish and Icelandic composers, performed by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and recorded live in the National Concert Hall at New Music Dublin 2020.

Siobhán Cleary's Hum! is a musical theatre piece for two actors and string orchestra, a work of humour, conflict and tragedy with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ryan McAdams acting as greek chorus. They're all joined by the Ligeti Quartet for the world premiere of Jane O'Leary's Triptych in which four solo instruments act as a unit, layered with the incredibly soft sounds of the orchestra. And we'll hear Hugi Guðmundsson Box, a concerto for accordion, symphony orchestra and barrel organ performed with soloist Andreas Borregaard and conducted by Daniel Bjarnsson.
