About this Event

EX-TEMPORE / IN THE MOMENT

In a first for Finding a Voice, tune in for some live improvised sounds from this exciting pairing of Irish-based Japanese pianist Izumi Kimura and virtuoso violinist Cora Venus Lunny. The Irish Examiner describes them as ‘one of the Irish scene’s most intriguing duos’ and ‘definitely ones to watch’ – not to be missed!

Their 2021 album Folding, with field recordings by Anthony Kelly, is available now on Farpoint Recordings.

Finding a Voice

For the fourth edition of Finding a Voice in 2021, the concert series will again focus on the music of women composers through the ages, building and expanding on the first three highly successful series since 2018. The theme for 2021 is #ItsAboutTime and several concerts will focus on the notion of “time” in all its different iterations, from Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel’s epic piano piece Das Jahr [The Year],to percussionist Alex Petcu’s exploration of time in relation to rhythm, tempo and duration. Finding a Voice will also celebrate a significant anniversary in 2021 – the bi-centenary of the birth of Pauline Garcia Viardot, one of the most significant musical figures of the nineteenth century.
