Sounds from Ireland

World-renowned pianist, Finghin Collins, privileged the Chatham community with the opportunity of hearing his lecture-recital. Collins played an exquisite program of music by John Field, Chopin, Mozart, and Schubert, as well as two contemporary Irish composers, Philip Martin and Marian Ingoldsby, performing their works from the Ros Tapestry Suite, which, as the New Ross Piano Festival site describes, “represents a variegated musical response to the Ros Tapestry, an impressive fifteen-panel work of embroidery tracing the history of the Norman invasion of Ireland.” Collins, in a remarkable way, infused in his music both the remembrance of things past and the freshness of the contemporary, performing simultaneously with gravitas and lightness, attentive to every subtlety. The Chatham community offers an indelible gratitude and a perpetual bravo to Finghin Collins!
