The worlds of physics and electro-acoustic music collide with music from composer Matthew Whiteside and we'll hear music from prominent composer and suffragette, Ethel Smyth.

A Zeit night in Clonmel and the Achill International Harp Festival

A Zeit night in Clonmel and the Achill International Harp Festival

Aine Fay presents this week's Gig Guide, and has details of the Zeit night in Clonmel, the Achill International Harp Festival and performances of contemporary Irish works at the Belfast International Arts Festival.

Sunday December 15th

Tonight we explore two exciting new releases on the Hyperion label, starting with a new recording of the Bach Six Partitas from Angela Hewitt, whose music she describes as ‘a great gift and a lifelong adventure’. And by way of contrast, we’ll also hear the unique sound of the Elm City Girls’ Choir performing works by Roderick Williams and Reena Esmail - contemporary choral music with a New England twist.


Sunday December 22nd

The Louth Contemporary Music Society midsummer festival is an annual highlight of the contemporary music scene in Ireland, which also receives great international acclaim. This year's festival 'The Gathering’ was no exception, and tonight we’ll hear highlights including music by Kaija Saariaho, who curated part of this year’s festival.


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.
