Cliodhna Ryan

The event, the last in the current series, takes place in the Kevin Barry Room of the National Concert Hall at 6pm, on Thursday, 30 May 2013.

Irish violinist Cliodhna Ryan presents a programme of works illustrating different approaches to writing for the violin.

Works performed includes Ian Wilson’s Una Santa Oscura – Fragment for violin and tape; Enda Bates’ Searching for Home for violin and electronics; Nothing Else by Niall Vallely; and Ed Bennett’s Sometimes it Rains.

Two of the works on the programme are premieres. Ian Wilson’s Una Santa Oscura was originallly written and performed in 2009 as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival. The salon features a world premiere of a special concert version of part of the original stage piece, Una Santa Oscura – Fragment. Nothing Else for solo violin by Niall Vallely was written especially for the salon, and is part of the music for a documentary on Joseph Campbell, a Belfast-born poet and political activist, probably best-known for writing the song My Lagan Love.

Cliodhna Ryan enjoys a diverse and varied career as a violinist. She performs extensively as a soloist and recitalist throughout the British Isles and has broadcast extensively on Lyric FM and BBC Radio. In addition to her work with the Rothko Trio, with whom she is a founding member, she has performed with the Vanbrugh String Quartet, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, Chroma, Ergodos and Crash Ensemble.
