Diatribe Records proudly presents ‘All Soundings Are True’, a new collaboration between world-renowned musicians Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Garth Knox.
Since their debut as part of the National Concert Hall’s ‘Tradition Now’ series in 2015, the duo have sculpted a uniquely personal soundworld that draws on a rich shared musical heritage, spanning a wealth of traditional, medieval and contemporary music.
Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh makes music on a 10-string fiddle called the hardanger d’amore, and travels the world as a solo musician, in duos with Dan Trueman, Mick O’Brien and Brendan Begley, and as a member of The Gloaming and This is How we Fly. He has performed on some of the most beautiful stages in the world, including the Sydney Opera House, the Royal Albert Hall and the Lincoln Center, exploring the area where traditional music begins to disintegrate.
Garth Knox is at the forefront of the new music scene in many fields. Drawing on his vast experience as viola player of the Arditti Quartet and the Ensemble Intercontemporain, and his close collaboration with most of the leading composers of today, he has become a unique performer of music of many different styles, ranging from minimalist understatement to the cutting edge of new techniques and new technologies. Thanks to his interest in the viola d’amore, his repertoire has opened up to the music of the past, which he persuasively brings into the present.
The record is released internationally on Saturday July 1st 2017.
