Event description
Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Sharon Carty performs with pianist Gary Beecher. Part of West Wicklow Festival 'Winter Weekend', 12-14 November.

About this event

Sharon Carty mezzo-soprano & Gary Beecher piano

Kildare mezzo-soprano Sharon Carty is admired by audiences for her musicality and intelligence, as well as for the warmth, clarity and agility of her voice. Sharon will perform with the acclaimed Cork pianist Gary Beecher, who in 2019 was awarded First Prize at the prestigious International Nadia and Lili Boulanger Voice-Piano Competition in Paris.

Schubert composed more than 600 songs in his short life, each a mirror to the human experience. Gary and Sharon will perform a selection of six of them, beginning with ‘Viola’, a ballad about a lovesick snowdrop, and ending with ‘An die Musik’, a hymn to the art of music, and one of Schubert’s best-known songs. Also featured are Chansons de Bilitis, Debussy’s setting of a collection of poems by his contemporary Pierre Louÿs, Grieg’s Six Songs, offering a distinctly Norwegian take on German Romanticism, and closer to home, a selection of songs by English and Irish composers.
