Kirkos: Rite

I am terribly terribly excited to announce the Kirkos: Rite event!

To celebrate the centenary of Stravinsky’s seminal ballet The Rite of Spring, Kirkos have enlisted 14 of Ireland’s leading professional and student composers. Each one of these titans of modern Irish music has reimagined a section of the Rite for string trio.

The project will be launched in the Odessa Club on the 29th of May; more details will  be announced over the next two weeks but for now, the Dylanesque stylings of Robert Coleman will say it better than I ever could:
