Irish Chamber Orchestra

September 22, 2023 | 7:30 pm

Christian Curnyn Conductor
Sharon Carty Mezzo Soprano
Anna Devin Soprano
Van Wassenaer – Concerto Armonici No.5 in f Minor
Respighi – Ancient Airs and Dances Suite No. 3
Puccini Chrysanthemums
Pergolesi – Stabat Mater
The Concerto by Van Wassenaer, originally attributed to Pergolesi, brims with rich harmonic and melodic invention, ground-breaking for its time. It makes for a fine companion to Pergolesi’s emblematic Stabat Mater as Sharon Carty and Ann Devin perform the stunning setting of the 13th-century hymn to Mary at the Crucifixion. This beautiful and deeply personal meditation, written by the 26-year-old dying composer transports us to the very heart of human passion. Respighi’s captivating and expressive Ancient Airs and Dances No. 3 is a shining example of how brilliantly he brings a modern twist to ancient dance melodies. Puccini‘s elegiac Chrysanthemums, adds colour and warmth in this beautifully poignant movement from Puccini‘s opera Manon Lescaut.
With Special thanks to Father James Ronayne.
