Moeran & McKay (with Fidelio Trio & Philippa Mo)
Members of The Fidelio Trio, joined by violinist Philippa Mo, explore music by our patron composer, Ernest Moeran, marking the 70th anniversary of his death in 1950 and, true to the Festival’s mission and tradition, focus on a living Irish composer, this year Deirdre McKay. The programme encompasses some of Moeran’s most evocative chamber music and the exquisite soundworlds McKay constructs from minimal sources and materials. PROGRAMME -- Ernest Moeran (1894 – 1950): Sonata for Violin and Piano, Movement 1 Ernest Moeran: Prelude for cello and piano Deirdre McKay (b. 1972): Time Shining (for solo piano) Ernest Moeran: Sonata for Two Violins, Movement 1 Deirdre McKay: Secundum for violin and piano Ernest Moeran: Piano Trio in D major, Movements 1 and 3 More about this event can be found here: https://www.chambermusiconvalentia.com/moeran-mckay/ More about Deirdre's work can be found here: http://www.deirdremckay.co.uk More about Chamber Music on Valentia can be found here: https://www.chambermusiconvalentia.com
The 8th Fidelio Trio WCMF: Beethoven250
The composer who penned the four most recognisable notes in the history of music. A true artist: dishevelled, volatile and unlucky in love – but a great believer in humanity. A genius who wrote some of his greatest works after he lost his hearing. To commemorate the 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, we would like to share the opening movement from a pinnacle of the piano trio literature ‘Archduke’, alongside a new commission commemorating 25th anniversary of the tragic and untimely death of Spencer Boney, founding pianist of the Fidelio Trio. This digital event will also feature a composer interview with David Fennessy and members of the Fidelio Trio. Full information about this digital concert can be found here: https://www.fideliotriowinterfestival.org/our-2020-festival/beethoven250 PROGRAMME -- Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Trio No. 7 in Bb, Op 97 ‘Archduke Trio’, Allegro moderato David Fennessy: Piano Trio no.2; In Memoriam Spencer Boney (World premiere; commissioned by Glasdrum for Fidelio Trio with funds from Arts Council of Ireland) PERFORMERS -- Darragh Morgan (violin) | Tim Gill (cello) | Mary Dullea (piano) SUPPORT US -- As a not-for-profit organisation, we depend on your support to bring an annual series of exciting chamber music to audiences, support emerging talent, and promoting innovative new music.
