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 October 20th

The worlds of physics and electro-acoustic music collide as we explore the new album from composer Matthew Whiteside, music for string quartet and electronics inspired by work of physicist John Stewart Bell. We’ll also hear music from prominent composer and suffragette, Ethel Smyth, excerpts from her Mass in D performed by Sakari Oramo, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and an outstanding quartet of soloists.


Sunday October 27th

Refleksija (Reflection) is a musical dialogue between Serbian composer Dejan Despic and Irish composer Ian Wilson, and also the title of their new collaborative album. Based on the idea of glints of light or sound reflected from the object to the observer, tonight we explore these new works performed by the Anime Violin Trio. We’ll also hear the latest album from English lute/viola ensemble Fretwork, the follow-up to their acclaimed debut release of thirty years ago, In Nomine.


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.
