Aloys Fleischmann: Orchestral Works

Aloys Fleischmann: Orchestral Works cover

Aloys Fleischmann (1910-1992) was one of the most prominent figures in Irish musical life of the last century. While drawing on the influence of contemporaries like Bartók and Vaughan Williams, his compositions are firmly rooted in the European classical tradition while also revealing an engagement with Irish folk music. This embracing of Gaelic culture is resoundingly evident in the final track on the CD, ‘Clare's Dragoons’. Other works featured are ‘The Four Masters Overture’, ‘Sinfonia Votiva’ and ‘An Cóitín Dearg’.
