European Masterworks-National Chamber Choir

 

National Chamber Choir

Paul Hillier, conductor

 

Gibbons  The Cries of London – (England)

Rytis Mazulis  The dazzled eye lost its speech – (Lithuania)

Peteris Vasks  love song – (Latvia)

Arvo Pärt  The Deer’s Cry – (Estonia)

Richard Dering  The Country Cries – (England)

Einojuhani Rautavaara  Galgenlieder – (Finland)

Louis Andriessen  Un beau baiser – (Holland)

Clément Janequin  Cris de Paris – (France)

Lopes Graca  Love Song – (Portugal)

Siobhan Cleary  Theophilus Thistle – (Ireland)

As Ireland enters its Presidency of the European Union in the first half of 2013, the occasion provides an opportunity to celebrate the magnificent body of chamber music that has emerged from all across the Union.  While many famous pillars of this repertoire are associated with France, Germany and Austria, in fact this rich pool of music, in all its diversity, has had many other sources too, in the Mediterranean, Slavic and Nordic countries, not to mention the two islands on the North-West tip!  This series straddles these diverse regions in a survey of some of the great chamber music from the past five centuries and our own.

The third programme, “A Eurocry”, from the National Chamber Choir of Ireland, emphasizes the light and the humorous, from Orlando Gibbons’ The Cryes of London and Clément Janequin’s Les Cris de Paris to Siobhán Cleary’s very international and multi-lingual study of tongue-twisters Theophilus Thistle and the Myth of Miss Muffet.

Presented by the National Concert Hall
