Composer Lab 2019 - public workshop
Thu 23 May 2019
Interviews with 2019 Composer Lab participants Peter Fahey, Kerry Hagan, Daniel McDermott and Sam Perkin, along with Composer Lab mentor, David Fennessy.
Composer Lab is presented by CMC, in partnership with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and RTÉ lyric fm.
Now in its fourth year, the initiative is aimed at composers who wish to write for symphony orchestra and focuses on providing these composers with a creative and open environment to deepen their experience in writing for symphonic forces, under the mentorship of composer David Fennessy.
The interviews were recorded during a workshop in April 2019 at the National Concert Hall, Dublin with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and conductor Gavin Maloney.
The completed pieces will be broadcast live from the RTÉ Radio Centre on RTÉ lyric fm on 28 May from 9pm, as part of the 'Blue of the Night' programme, presented by Bernard Clarke.
