The CMC in association with the Royal Irish Academy of Music, presents Musical Tales 2012

The Contemporary Music Centre, in association with the Royal Irish Academy of Music, presents Musical Tales 2012 – a series of four concerts of live music with short films in Dublin City Libraries – featuring the Milesian Quartet wih soprano Rachel Croash and flautist Brian Dunning. The concerts are curated by composer, Benjamin Dwyer, who will also introduce each concert and set the context for each piece of music performed and each short film screened.

In celebration of James Joyce’s Dubliners being the chosen book for One City One Book 2012 and to mark the influence of James Joyce on Irish composers the Contemporary Music Centre has devised a concert of live music with short films by Irish composers all inspired by Joyce. The Contemporary Music Centre presents this concert programme in association with the Royal Irish Academy of Music in 4 Dublin City libraries, 16 – 19 April 2012, funded by the Dublin City Council Arts Office Arts Grants 2012 and supported by the Dublin City Council Library Development Office.

The concert programme features works by Irish composers: Vincent Kennedy, Rob Canning, Michael Holohan, Benjamin Dwyer, Trevor Knight and Eric Sweeney. These composers have all found inspiration in the work of James Joyce. The five short films to be screened were commissioned by the Contemporary Music Centre in 2004 as part of the ReJoyce in Dublin Festival.  Each short film features music commissioned by the Centre alongside visuals created by a series of artists, film-makers and animators. All concerts are FREE admission but booking is essential. Please contact the relevant library to book.
