In May, the orchestra are back on the road with a regional tour visiting venues in Limerick, Kilkee, Co. Clare, Newport, Co. Mayo & Monaghan directed by Katherine Hunka from the violin. 

Vivaldi’s inflammable brilliance first ignited with L'estro armonico or The Genius of Harmony, a set of twelve concertos &, one of the most influential of its day.  No. 1 oozes creativity & imagination performed by ICO soloists. 

Bach’s virtuosic Concerto for 2 Violins in D minor is one of his best-loved works & will be performed by ICO’s Katherine Hunka & Nicola Sweeney. Schubert’s Death & the Maiden, one of his finest works, makes for thought-provoking, refreshing listening combined with the sheer energy of the ICO’s music-making. 

Malachy Robinson’s cinematic new work (commissioned for this tour) invokes music both old & new, & green men both woodland and alien!
