Kilkenny Arts Festival 2019 – Afternoon Concert

August 2019

Irish Chamber Orchestra
Katherine Hunka Director
Britten Variations on a Theme by Frank Bridge
David Fennessey Hirta Rounds
Elgar Introduction and Allegro

Britten’s Variations On A Theme by Frank Bridge were dedicated to his first teacher and are remarkably diverse, stylistic vignettes.  Elgar’s brilliant take on the concerto grosso – his Introduction and Allegro – brought him international fame. These two iconic, twentieth-century works, bookend David Fennessy’s Hirta Rounds, an ethereal piece by one of Ireland’s most accomplished composers.
