About this event

Gráinne Mulvey: Great Women (world première)

Recorded at St Patrick’s Hall, State Apartments, Dublin Castle

The new liveried Dublin International Chamber Music Festival is proud to present the world première of Gráinne Mulvey’s Great Women, a work specially commissioned by the Festival and filmed by director John Comiskey, with funds from The Arts Council and which has given our second day its focus on women performers and composers.

Performed by soprano Elizabeth Hilliard, a champion of the composer’s work, Great Women is a celebration of the strong, remarkable Irish women who have helped shape the social and political landscape through their striving for equality and liberation. Amongst those whose words are set are pioneering patriots, Countess Markievicz and Rosie Hackett, alongside such equally inspiring contemporary figures as our former Presidents Mary Robinson and Mary McAleese.

You'll be able to enjoy the concert via the Eventbrite event page from 9pm (IST) on Friday 18th June.

Organiser Dublin International Chamber Music Festival

Organiser of Elizabeth Hilliard performs Gráinne Mulvey's "Great Women"

The Dublin International Chamber Music Festival (formerly Great Music in Irish Houses) is Ireland’s longest-established chamber music festival and was founded in Castletown House in 1970. Since then, the month of June has been a musical summer must for Irish chamber music devotees. Our objective was and still is, to present concerts of chamber music, “the music of friends” in the sort of smaller, intimate spaces for which the music was originally written, away from the more formal setting of a concert hall. Over the years we have offered Irish audiences the opportunity to hear some of the finest international and Irish artists perform a vast range of chamber music in a variety of Ireland’s most historic and notable buildings, spaces that would not normally resound with beautiful and exciting music. Stately Irish Houses are juxtaposed with some of the country’s iconic, modern buildings showing the diversity of Irish architectural and interior design. From that small sapling planted in Castletown House, the great oak that is now the current Festival has grown and is recognised widely as a prestigious platform for world-class musicians.

DICMF is a non-profit making organisation and depends on the support of sponsors and Friends to continue its work into the future. It is funded by The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
