Bernard Clarke curates Kaleidoscope night


Tonight, Wednesday November 2nd, Kaleidoscope is delighted to welcome RTE Lyric FM Nova presenter Bernard Clarke as guest curator and presenter. He has put together a programme which represents all that Kaleidoscope is; diversity, passion, innovation, intimacy and community.

Opening proceedings is rising Irish composer Enda Bates and his hexaphonic guitar. Paul Roe follows with Stravinsky’s Three Pieces for Solo Clarinet. Ergodos musicians, following their successful “all the ends of the earth” in New York and Project arts centre, open a window to the medieval world with arrangements of works by Léonin and Guillaume de Machaut.
Bernard has also invited poet Dave Lordan (the most recent Ireland Chair of Poetry bursary recipient and multi-award winning writer) to bring his poetry to the stage. Dave’s selections will come principally from his two books The Boy in the Ring and Invitation to a Sacrifice.
Members Cork’s Quiet Music Ensemble will then take to the stage for one of their specialities-an improvisation; plus an intriguing piece by Susan Geaney, called Vacuum. The final piece will see all the musicians back up on stage for an all-star-jam!
