New Music Dublin: Great Women in Richmond Barracks, featuring the world premiere of a work by Ailís Ní Ríain, and music by Gráinne Mulvey

20 April 2023 16:30

Richmond Barracks

Performed by Irish soprano and ‘veritable tour de force of vocal sound, experimentation and expression’ (Opera Today) Elizabeth Hilliard, the programme is built around Great Women by Gráinne Mulvey. Commissioned by the Dublin International Chamber Music Festival with funds from The Arts Council, this towering work is a celebration of Irish women who have helped to shape the social and political landscape through their striving for equality and liberation. It is followed by Israeli composer Chaya Czernowin’s diaphanous ‘etude in fragility’ Adiantum Capillus-Veneris (I), and a world premiere from Ailís Ní Ríain.
