The National Concert Hall's Perspectives series sees leading contemporary international and Irish artists explore the musical present in a series of five new and exciting concerts announced for 2022.
Perspectives 2022 is as diverse as ever boasting performances by Grammy-nominated jazz pianist Vijay Iyer and Chicago-based vocalist and composer Haley Fohr aka Circuit Des Yeux. In addition, celebrated musician Martin Hayes will return to the NCH stage with his new project the Common Ground Ensemble, this band rooted in traditional Irish music that also embraces jazz, improvised and classical idioms. Elsewhere in the series, pioneering artist Laurie Anderson follows her 2017 residency by bringing her latest solo work The Art of Falling to the National Concert Hall – the project addresses the complex questions of our shifting world. And finally, one of jazz’s most influential guitarists John McLaughlin will perform with his electric fusion quartet 4th Dimension. Further Perspectives concerts and projects will be announced throughout 2022.
