In celebration of James Joyce’s  Dubliners being the chosen book for One City One Book 2012 and to mark  the influence of James Joyce on Irish composers the Contemporary Music Centre, in association with the Royal Irish Academy of Music, has devised a series of concerts of live music with short films by Irish composers all inspired by Joyce. The series, entitled “Musical Tales 2012”, will run from 16th to 19th April at various Dublin City Libraries.

The concert programme, curated by Irish Composer Benjamin Dwyer will be performed by Brian Dunning (flute) alongside the RIAM Milesian Quartet: Colm Ó Braoin (violin), Denice Doyle (violin), Sebastian Adams (viola), David Doyle (cello) with soprano Rachel Croash. Benjamin Dwyer will introduce each concert and set the context for each piece of music performed and each short film screened. The concerts, which are all FREE admission, and all at 1pm – 2pm, take place in Rathmines Library, 16 April; Cabra Library, 17 April; Raheny Library, 18 April and Central Library – Ilac Centre, 19 April.

The concert programme features works by Irish composers: Vincent Kennedy, Rob Canning, Michael Holohan, Benjamin Dwyer, Trevor Knight and Eric Sweeney. These composers have all found inspiration in the work of James Joyce. The five short films to be screened were commissioned by the Contemporary Music Centre in 2004 as part of the ReJoyce in Dublin Festival.  Each short film features music commissioned by the Centre alongside visuals created by a series of artists, film-makers and animators.
