The Song of Songs
features the world premiere of new works by David Lang and Betty Olivero
Performed by Trio Mediaeval and Garth Knox’s Saltarello Trio and Cliona Doris
The Song of Songs features the world premiere performances of two incredible new works by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang and renowned composer Betty Olivero centred around the ancient text The Song of Songs or The Song of Solomon.
The brilliant Norwegian Trio Mediaeval collaborate with Garth Knox’s stunning Saltarello Trio for the first time in Drogheda Louth to perform the new compositions.
The new compositions, Lang’s just (after the song of songs) and Olivero’s En La Mar Hai Una Torre (In the sea there is a lighthouse) are lyrical yet beautiful contemporary spiritual works that are breathtaking from start to finish. The concert will also feature Garth Knox performing Berio’s Naturale which is apt considering Berio was one of Olivero’s most important teachers.This is one concert not to miss.
