CONCORDE: UP CLOSE WITH MUSIC

celebrating 35  years of Concorde

During the past season Concorde commissioned six new works from Irish composers to celebrate their 35th anniversary.  These new works were premiered in six events over the past year and are now presented together in concert.   They will be released on CD later in the year to coincide with a new series of concerts starting in January 2013. Concorde’s ‘Up Close with Music’ series has been supported by an Arts Council Project Award and performances have taken place in the Rubicon Gallery, the Contemporary Music Centre and the Gallery of Photography.  The season has featured these commissioned works alongside past repertoire and contributions from Irish and international composers.

Two of the pieces, by Rhona Clarke and Jane O’Leary, have also been performed earlier this year in Chicago as part of a partnership with the organization ACM. 

 Dave Fennessy’s composition for cello relates directly to evocative photographs taken during the 1960’s by German artist Evelyn Hofer; Raymond Deane’s trio was written in memory of Arthur Sealy; Elaine Agnew explores the sound world of the bass clarinet; Rhona Clarke has layered tracks of her own voice singing plainchant to join with a violin/cello duo of live players; Jane O’Leary recalls the ghosts of the past who have inhabited No. 19 Fishamble Street in a work for solo violin; and Dave Flynn uses techniques of traditional music in a freely composed score for wooden flute and clarinet.

CONCORDE have been performing new music since September 1976 when they  gave their debut concert at the American Embassy in Dublin.  Since then they have  commissionedover one hundred pieces, traveled widely in Europe and to the USA, recorded music for numerous CD labels, broadcast on radio worldwide, performed far and wide in Ireland, met many interesting musicians and composers and enjoyed being at the forefront of new music.  In October of last year they presented a programme of five newly commissioned works at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris with Garth Knox, violist, to a capacity audience.  The series Up Close with Music took place in intimate spaces in Dublin between November 2011 and July 2012, assisted by an Arts Council Project Award. 

 A CD ‘Reflections’ featuring Concorde commissions from Irish, Mexican and Korean composers was released on the Navona label in 2010 and is available online from the usual outlets and from the Contemporary Music Centre.  Concorde is ensemble-in-residence at the Conservatory of Music & Drama at DIT.

 This is adventurous, inventive and always surprising music performed by one of the world’s best modern music groups (New Classics Music Review).
