Raymond Deane performs a solo recital of new music by Irish composers

The concert takes place on 29 January at the Kevin Barry Room at 8.30pm as part of the Association of Irish Composers’ Irish Composers on Irish Music, a new series of concerts and talks from Irish composers on their choice of music for their instrument. The programme features works by Fergus Johnston, Derek Ball, John McLachlan, Siobhán Cleary, Barry O’Halpin, Jennifer Walshe, and Deane himself. Raymond Deane“This programme begins with a quotation from Bach (introducing my Orphic Piece III) and ends with quotations from Beethoven and the Beatles (in Jennifer Walshe’s Becher). The other works in the programme mostly avoid quotation but relate to the music of the past in more oblique ways. When is a chord of E major a Beatles quotation and when is it just a chord? Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar…” Listen to an interview with Raymond Deane about the concert Tickets €10 (Concessions: €8) are available for the concert from the National Concert Hall  Raymond Deane: solo piano programme: Raymond Deane: Orphic Piece III Fergus Johnston: Prelude Éagaoineadh Derek Ball: Countertangos I-VII John McLachlan: Drinking the Stars Raymond Deane: Noctuary III, IV, VII Siobhán Cleary: Études I-III Barry O’Halpin: Miniature Jennifer Walshe: Becher
