The Irish Chamber Orchestra revisits David Fennessy’s remarkable, ethereal Hirta Rounds evoking memories of Scottish islanders leaving their homes of many centuries. The charismatic Florian Donderer gives an emotive perform of Haydn’s Violin Concerto – an all-time favourite with is its radiant outer movements flanking an exquisite Adagio. The ICO concludes with Dvořák’s sunny and genial Serenade for Strings, one of his best loved works. This ICO showcase is another romp of pure, unadulterated joy!

The Irish Chamber Orchestra is Ireland’s most dynamic ensemble. Mixing traditional repertoire with new commissions and collaborating with everyone from DJs to dance companies, the ICO pushes the boundaries of what a chamber orchestra can do. You are as likely to find ICO at Electric Picnic as Mozartfest, but wherever the orchestra performs, it delivers world-class concerts feted for its energy and style.
