Hello all, I just want to direct your attention to a concert
that is happening on the 24th of this month in the National Concert Hall.
ICC New Works for Two Cellos performed by Ilse de Ziah and Lioba Petrie.
May 24th 2011 | 8.30pm (pre-concert talk 8.15pm) | Kevin Barry Room, National Concert Hall, Dublin 2
This should be an interesting concert for both composers and performers
and even those who are interested in Irish music and composition as a whole.
So tell a friend and come along it should be a good night.
Student tickets are only €5!
This month the Irish Composers’ Collective monthly concert series will be all about the Cello
– two cellos to be precise – performed by cellists Ilse de Ziah and Lioba Petrie.
As with all Irish Composers’ Collective events, de Ziah and Petrie will perform
new and previously unperformed works by member composers.
This month’s line-up of premieres includes work by Derek Foott, Marc Tweedie,
David O’Regan, Bryan Dunphy, Ben McHugh and Daniel Barkley and
the concert will take place in the Kevin Barry Room of the National Concert Hall.
Ilse de Ziah
has had a varied musical career, playing cello all over the world.
Her most recent work includes the Cork Opera House production of Dido and Aeneas,
the release of her CD and publishing of a book of Irish Airs for Solo Cello.
Ilse is also involved with the Australian contemporary music trio Ozmosis,
Scarlet String Quartet, and Baroque ensembles Retorika, and Beyond the Pale.
She is leader and tutor of the cello section of the Cork Symphony Orchestra
and has composed music for dance, theatre and film.
Lioba Petrie is an active chamber musician and teacher.
Her interest in contemporary music began when she became a member of
the new music collective EAR (electro acoustic revue) with whom she performs regularly,
discovering fresh contemporary music and working closely with other composers.
In 2008 Lioba became a member of the Maconchy Project,
a celebration of the Irish composer Elizabeth Maconchy and two other female Irish composers:
Jane O’Leary and Linda Buckley.
Lioba is also a member of contemporary ensembles Somadrone and 3epkano
and has toured both nationally and internationally with the Limbik Theatre Company.
