'STILL REFLECTION ON A THEME BY CLARA SCHUMANN' AT FINDING A VOICE

The South Tipperary Arts Centre will mark International Women’s Day with the Finding a Voice concert series – a celebration of women composers. The series will also mark the 200th anniversary of Clara Schumann, and will feature a series of specially commissioned works, ‘reflections’ on a theme by Schumann from the Scherzo of her Piano Trio in G Minor Op. 17, by Jane O’Leary, Rhona Clarke, Siobhan Cleary, Marian Ingoldsby, Amanda Feery and Anna Murray.

Still Reflection focusses in on a few tiny gestures of the Clara Schumann theme, expanding and re-combining them to create a slow, open 'still life’ of the original.

Kirkos Ensemble – Speaking of Music

Kirkos Ensemble – Speaking of Music

Featuring words.

Kirkos will open 2019 by taking control of the RIAM’s premises on Westland Row to unleash Speaking of Music, a multimedia Happening overlapping an array of works by Irish and international artists at the bleeding edge of experimental music.

Co-curated by Andy Ingamells, the evening centres loosely on the theme of innovative use of text and speech. Presented in three parts across the evening, the audience can roam freely through a performance, installations, and finally a Happening with members of the Kirkos Ensemble. 

Showcasing the truly chaotic, unpredictable, anarchic and sometimes silly character of experimental music, expect an evening of multisensory encounters full of surprise, laughter, lemon juice, a Mexican standoff, the destruction of a piano, the disembodiment of Beethoven, a dating app, and much much more.
