Concorde’s February ‘Up Close With Music’ concert features music by Emma O’Halloran, Jane O’Leary and Dave Flynn


The second event in Concorde’s 2013 Up Close With Music series at the RHA Gallery will feature new works by Irish composers  Jane O’Leary, Emma O’Halloran and Dave Flynn, alongside composers from Estonia, Finland, Australia and Greece.

The afternoon concert will be in two parts, the first focussing on the international work, and the second on the Irish, with the Concorde-commissioned work by Jane O’Leary, A Way Through, featuring in both. This new work will be accompanied by photographic images from the Annaghmakerrig woods prepared  by artist Marie Hanlon. Dave Flynn’s Concorde-commissioned work, Quirk No. 7, from 2011 is also included in the programme, as is Emma O’Halloran’s piece written for Paul Roe, Charm and Strange, and the Irish premiere of Greek composer Christos Farmakis’ AccordeOn-AccordeOFF, selected from an international call for scores.
