January Mini-Series

January Mini-Series

Béal present two recitals in the National Concert Hall’s Kevin Barry Room by Elizabeth Hilliard (soprano) and David Bremner (piano). Both feature new works specially written for the duo- by Garrett Sholdice and Siobhán Cleary.

The two recitals are somewhat different in mood; the concert on Tuesday 17th is full of sudden outbursts of colour. It features in addition to the Cleary commission, the world premiere of all of Rhona Clarke’s Five Songs, a seasonal fairytale by Co. Kerry-based Massimo Davi, and the sensuous melancholy of Debussy’s cycle Ariettes Oubliées.

The concert on Tuesday 31st presents a more rarefied atmosphere. Beside a selection from Schubert’s stark Schwanengesang are placed Garrett Sholdice’s three lieder after franz schubert, Bremner’s monodrama The bright kids (logic ballad), and Webern’s impossibly condensed, compact Vier Lieder.
