SPOTLIGHT ON THE IRISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

Beginning Winterval with a musical flourish, the ICO (Irish Chamber Orchestra) returns to Waterford under the baton of their Principal Conductor & Artistic Partner Jörg Widmann on Saturday 17 November at 7:30pm in the beautiful Large Room, City Hall, Waterford. The programme comprises music by well-known composers Puccini and Tchaikovsky, together with Stamitz’s clarinet concerto, and the spotlight is on a newly commissioned short work by the Dublin born composer, Sebastian Adams.

The concert is presented jointly by Waterford Music and the Symphony Club of Waterford and is free to their members. Otherwise Tickets are €20 from Garter Lane or on the door.

Puccini’s Chrysanthemums was written as an elegy on the death of the Duke of Savoy and was included in the death scene of Puccini’s opera Manon Lescaut. Johann Stamitz’s clarinet concerto was an early milestone in the use of wind instruments as part of an orchestra while Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for strings is one his best loved pieces.

The Irish Chamber Orchestra is a world class orchestra, based in Limerick, and is renowned for its diversity, energy, its unique sound and outstanding musicianship. Conductor Jörg Widmann is currently their Conductor/Artistic Partner, and is considered to be one of the most versatile and intriguing artists of his generation. 

“Widmann’s energy doesn’t seem to have any boundaries, he simply motivates everyone around him, be it the hard working shining brass, the zippy violins or the juicy explosions in sound.”
