We celebrate the launch of violin:piano, a new record of scintillating chamber music by composer Kevin Volans, with a very special concert from pianist Jill Richards and violinist / violist Waldo Alexander in Dublin’s atmospheric Pepper Canister Church on Sunday 4 October at 8pm.
Tickets (€10-€15) are available here.
violin:piano features the premiere recordings of three major duos from 2009 – violin:piano, Etude 9 for piano and electronics, and viola:piano – as well as the violin solo Passi leggieri, originally composed for Norwegian Hardanger fiddle in 2003.
Sensitively performed by two experienced interpreters of Volans’ music, violinist / violist Waldo Alexander and pianist Jill Richards, this music is all about the contour of the moment. From its first sumptuous gesture, each piece absorbs completely, promising an adventure of luminous beauty.
