Fri, 2 Dec 2016, 19:30 – Sun, 4 Dec 2016, 17:00
GLASDRUM, a north Dublin voluntary organisation dedicated to bringing high quality arts events to Glasnevin and Drumcondra, reunites with Music at DCU to present the FIDELIO TRIO WINTER CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL 2016 from December 2nd to 4th in Belvedere House, St Patrick’s Campus DCU, Drumcondra, Dublin 9.
Building on the success of the 2015 festival, this year’s event brings guests Matthew Jones (viola), Chi-chi Nwanoku (double bass) and Joan Rodgers (soprano) together with the Fidelio Trio – Darragh Morgan (violin), Adi Tal (cello) and Mary Dullea (piano) for four sumptuous performances in the intimate 18th century atmosphere of Belevedere House.
On Friday December 2 (7.30pm), the compelling Fidelio Trio present MUSIC FROM THE CZECH LANDS +, performing chamber works by Martinů, Janáček and Smetana as well as the Irish premiere of Irish composer Sam Perkin’s ‘Freakshow’. Commissioned by Gregynog Chamber Music Festival and composed for the Fidelio Trio, ‘Freakshow’ takes its inspiration from an anecdote in Fron-Goch Camp 1916 by Lyn Ebenezer, and celebrates the remarkable and macabre human curiosity that was/is: the ‘freakshow’. Approx duration 1hr 45mins.
Saturday December 3rd (1.15pm) is the lunchtime SCHUBERTIADE, featuring Welsh violist Matthew Jones, one of the leading violists and pedagogues of his generation, with the Fidelio Trio, playing a singularly Schubert programme. Approx duration 1hr.
The SCHUBERTIADE continues on the evening of Saturday December 3rd (7.30pm), when the trio are joined by Chi-Chi Nwanoku MBE, principal double bassist and founding member of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment; and Joan Rodgers, one of the best loved British sopranos, equally established in opera, in concert and as a recitalist, who joins the Fidelio Trio to perform Schubert Lieder. Approx duration 1hr 45mins.
Sunday December 4th (3.15pm) sees a change of mood: in a programme titled A DIFFERENT GAME, the Fidelio Trio focuses on more contemporary fare, presenting the world premieres of Rhona Clarke’s A Different Game and Ann Cleare’s 93 million miles away, a Festival Commission funded by the Arts Council. Joan Rodgers and Mary Dullea will perform selected songs by Ina Boyle, whose work was recently very well received in the NCH’s 'Composing the Island' series, and the Fidelio trio will close the festival with Piano Trio in G Minor by Clara Schumann, the foremost female composer of the 19th Century. Approx duration 1hr 15mins.
