Seán Doherty Clandeboye Overture
​​​​John Field Nocturnes in E minor and E flat for piano & strings (arr by B Douglas)
Shostakovich Concerto for piano and trumpet Op 35 (1933) 
​​​​​​Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48

Camerata Ireland brings together great Irish music-making with their musicians and two Irish composers- John Field and the young Derry composer Seán Doherty. There will be two Russian masterworks also - Shostakovich Concerto for piano and trumpet - featuring the Northern Irish trumpeter Niall Keatley - and myself on piano. Finishing the concert will be the radiant Serenade for Strings by Tchaikovsky. This is a mix of well-known and new music to lift the sprints and look forward to the next chapter in our country, after the darkness of the past months.” ​Barry Douglas

Camerata Ireland is a group of musicians from both parts of Ireland, some just starting out on their careers and some well-established musicians. Established by the internationally renowned pianist, Barry Douglas, Camerata Ireland exists to celebrate the incredible musical talents that exude from this small island on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

As we emerge from the Covid-19 Pandemic, NCH and Ireland’s leading ensembles and soloists come together to create a collaboratively developed season exploring themes of healing, recovery and change.

Presented by NCH and Camerata Ireland
