Kaleidoscope / Songs That Fall On The Turn / 4th May
The Goethe-Institut and Kaleidoscope Night have joined forces to honour the pivotal contribution to classical music in Ireland of the great Aloys Fleischmann, with a unique presentation of German, Irish and UK performers.
A live performance of Fleischmann’s “The Poets’ Circuits”
by visiting German soprano, Janina Staub and Irish harpist, Clare McCague. The rarely-performed 1972 work is a setting of four Padraic Colum poems, “The Crane”, “Black Tassles”, “Caoine” and “Spring”.
The same duo will also perform a world premiere written specially for this event by Irish Berlin-based composer, Garrett Sholdice, written as an homage to Fleischmann, of whom Sholdice’s grandparents were contemporaries and
Alluna Ensemble (UK) will be performing excerpts of Arnold Schoenberg’s seminal “Pierrot Lunaire”, Op. 21. The infamous setting of poems from Otto Erich Hartleben’s German translation of Albert Giraud’s cycle of French poems of the same name, Schoenberg’s melodrama is eminent for the delivery of the text in the Sprechstimme (literally “spoken voice”) style.
Kaleidoscope Night favourites The Gregory Walkers make a welcome return to the Odessa stage with a German-inspired programme of baroque and renaissance treats and a few choice surprises we’re sure!
