Irish Chamber Orchestra
Katherine Hunka Director
Michael Buckley Flute
Mozart Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music), KV 525 
Ronan Guilfoyle  Pipe Dreams Concerto for Jazz Flute
Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence, Op. 70
Mozart’s joyful serenade, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik is one of his most beautiful and best-loved works, full of memorable melodies.  Tchaikovsky’s jewel, his Souvenir de Florence was his final piece of chamber music – this tribute to the city of Florence is a wonderful celebration, full of lyricism and ecstatic vigour.  Originally scored for sextet, the ICO performs the Souvenir as a string orchestra, which adds to the richness inherent in the music, and amplifies Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous, full, lush sound world.  In between, renowned Jazz flute virtuoso Michael Buckley performs Pipe Dreams, an effervescent concerto for Jazz flute and orchestra by Ronan Guilfoyle.  A playful dialogue between Michael and orchestra demonstrates the flute’s agility – join us and experience a new and vibrant collaboration!
“The concert full of splendid music under leader Katherine Hunka, benefited from an eclectic approach….overall a stimulating and thought-provoking concert”
