Frank Corcoran at 70

To celebrate Irish composer Frank Corcoran’s 70th birthday in 2014 CMC is producing a short portrait film on the composer.

The film, The Light Gleams: a portrait of Frank Corcoran, is directed by filmmaker Mark Linnane and features concert footage and interviews with Corcoran on his life and music recorded earlier this year.

The film will be screened as part of Concorde’s 70th birthday tribute to Frank Corcoran, which takes place at the ensemble’s Up Close with Music event at the RHA Gallery, Dublin on 27 April from 2.30–4.30pm. The concerts also includes the Irish premiere of Corcoran’s work for solo bass clarinet, A Dark Song, as well as new works by Rhona Clarke and Marie Hanlon, Judith Ring, and Ed Bennett.
