CONCERT: Maria McGarry (piano) The Romantic Piano: Alkan and Beyond

CONCERT: Maria McGarry (piano) The Romantic Piano: Alkan and Beyond

8 May 2014 1:10PM - 8 May 2014 2:01PM

Description: Maria McGarry presents a showcase of solo repertoire by the eccentric maverick of the Romantic piano, Charles-Valentin Alkan. This famously virtuosic music is offset by the new simplicity and compression of early piano explorations by Berg and his teacher Schoenberg, heralding new pianistic expression in the new century. Maria McGarry is one of Ireland's leading pianists, enjoying a strong national and international profile as a performer. Her recitals in major venues in Ireland, Europe, the U.S. and Canada have received overwhelming audience responses and critical acclaim. She is a graduate of the 'Artist Diploma in Performance', the highest performance award from the prestigious Juilliard School, New York. Ms McGarry has given recitals at 'Wigmore Hall', London; the National Philharmonie, Warsaw; the 'Palais de Nations' Geneva; the 'Lincoln Centre', New York and the Aspen Music Festival, Colorado. She was invited to give the National Concert Hall’s ‘Debut Recital’ (now the Rising Star Recital) in 2002 and has represented Ireland at key international cultural events, performing at the E.U Culture Weeks in New Delhi and the ‘Biennale for Contemporary Art’ in Bari, Italy. Ms McGarry is a frequent performer at major arts events in Ireland, including the 'West Cork Chamber Music Festival', 'Sligo New Music Festival', 'Kilkenny Arts Festival' and the 'Belfast Festival at Queens'. In 2008, she gave a highly successful tour to highlight the centenary of Olivier Messiaen’s birth, performing the ‘Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant Jesus’ at venues throughout Ireland and the UK.

15 May 2014 1:10PM - 15 May 2014 2:01PM

Description: ”Speculations on the lyrical imagination of the resistant, the lazy and the hopeful”

The trembling voice, the determined gaze, the soft touch, the pouting lip, the pain of freedom, the frog in the throat, the distant horizon, the sudden burst, the gathering crowd, the forgotten words, the unknown outcome, the social energy, the lonely thought, the dispossessed, the longing and the nation, the disciplinary grip, the body on the run, the lost tribe, the flickering light, the moon overhead, the remembrance of things, the quiet hour, the unforgettable sound, the afternoon that drifts, the road to nowhere, and the sign up ahead, the song that made me stop, the whisper, the encounter, the writing on the wall.
