Irish composers feature this week on WNYC’s New Sounds

Irene Buckley

Following John Schaefer’s visit to Ireland last month on the invitation of CMC, the well known US new music broadcaster presents a number of programmes featuring music by Irish composers this week.

The first programme, broadcast on 14 April and available to listen to here, includes music from Irene Buckley, Benedict Schlepper-Connolly and Garrett Sholdice, while the second episode from the following day focuses on composers Ronan Guilfoyle and Gráinne Mulvey.

Many of the tracks featured come from CMC’s recent promotional disc, new music::new Ireland 2, which was launched by John Schaefer as part of his visit to Ireland.

A number of other episodes featuring new music by Irish composers will be broadcast in the coming weeks and will also be available to listen on demand here.
