A new trio by John Buckley is premiered on 9 June in Dublin

To Lands Beyond Time for flute, viola and harp was written for Triocca, who will premiere the work at Dublin’s Hugh Lane Gallery on 9 June as part of the Sunday’s at Noon series.

John Buckley describes the work:

To Lands Beyond Time draws its title, inspiration and imagery from a series of haiku poems. The themes are drawn from the natural world, the passage of time as well as timelessness, the futility of battle, the desire for freedom and the sense of loneliness or aloneness brought on by Autumn dusk. Much of the music was written over the winter months, when the sight and sounds of wild geese flying over the house from their nearby winter nesting site on the North Bull Island, were a daily occurrence.’

Irish-based Triocca (Ríona Ó Duinnín, flute, Nancy Johnson, viola and Geraldine O’Doherty, harp) was formed in 2003 and have performed throughout Ireland and abroad. They have premiered works by a number of Irish composers, including James Wilson, Philip Martin, Eric Sweeney, and Linda Buckley, amongst others. Their debut CD is available from the RTÉ lyric fm label.

The concert on 9 June also includes works by Arnold Bax and Maurice Ravel.
