In celebration of his 60th birthday year, join distinguished Irish composer Raymond Deane for Culture Night, as he performs a selection of his own compositions for solo piano at the Boydell Room, House 5, Trinity College Dublin, 6pm September 21st.
'My work embodies contradictions that I don’t attempt to overcome: indeed, its character is probably defined by the productive friction of contradictions.'
Raymond Deane is a pianist, novelist, essayist, political activist and a one of Ireland’s most renowned composers. The programme features pieces from key stages of Deane’s career, from his first piano cycle, the Orphic Pieces (1970) to After-Piece No 1 “By the clear dark fountain” composed 20 years later, finishing with Duskiss from his ‘nocturnal diary’ of twelve night pieces for solo piano (2010-2011).
The concert will be followed by a public discussion between Raymond Deane and Evangelia Rigaki, Director of the Music Composition Centre and an audience Q and A.
Linos II (1973)
After-Piece I (1989)
