Music for Galway in association with Arts in Action present celebrated composer and viola player, Sebastian Adams with cellist Yseult Cooper Stockdale

Sebastian and Yseult will perform a programme of contemporary music with Sebastian giving an insight into the modern musical voices which have particularly influenced his own work as a composer and violist. The programme will include works by Jonathan Nangle, Breffni O’Byrne and Sebastian himself.

Born in Amsterdam to Irish parents in 1991, Sebastian has studied composition in Vienna with Karlheinz Essl and under Kevin O‘Connell and Jonathan Nangle at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, from which he graduated with the highest marks ever awarded in both composition and music technology. He is RTÉ lyric fm’s Composer in Residence. A founder-member of the contemporary music ensemble, ‘Kirkos’, Sebastian is also the chair of the Irish Composers Collective and co-director of Fishamble Sinfonia.

Irish cellist, Yseult has toured, broadcast and recorded with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and has performed with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and Camerata Ireland. She is also a member of the ‘Kirkos’ ensemble. Having completed an M.A. in Music Performance at the Cork Institute of Technology, she has since moved to London to play with the Southbank Sinfonia, a cutting-edge chamber orchestra formed from the world’s most promising graduate musicians.
