Sound Out Sunday 15 September 2019
Composer Linda Buckley writes music that merges her classical training with the worlds of post punk, folk and ambient electronica. Her debut album for NMC Records features an illustrious lineup including Iarla O Lionaird, Darragh Morgan, Crash Ensemble and Isabelle O'Connell, and tonight we'll hear a selection of her works. We’ll also explore a tribute album celebrating composer and teacher Sir John Manduell, chamber works centred around settings of W.B. Yeats.
Tonight we hear a new ECM recording, as pianist Andras Schiff and clarinetist/composer Jorg Widmann perform Brahms's clarinet sonatas interspersed by Widmann’s Intermezzi. Plus the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gavin Maloney performs Threnody, a piece inspired by Brendan Kennelly’s The Trojan Women from a new NMC album celebrating composer Nicola LeFanu (pictured).
You can now hear our playlists each week on Spotify, and where possible we'll include all the music featured on the programme.
