HomeBlogCassiopeia Winds on the way to New Ross

 

Wind ensemble Cassiopeia Winds are making their way down to Co. Wexford today for a weekend at the New Ross Piano Festival.

The Festival is directed by Irish pianist Finghin Collins, and features some top-class guest performers such as Lise de la Salle and Melvyn Tan, alongside Cassiopeia Winds. The ensemble will feature in no less than four concerts across the weekend, with repertoire from Caplet, Rimsky-Korsakov, Poulenc and Mozart.

This comes at the same time as more good news for the quintet, as player Matthew Manning has also been appointed Principal Oboe at the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. And later this month horn player Cormac Ó'hAodáin will perform a concert of music by emerging Irish composers with the Irish Composers' Collective.

The festival also features the world premiere of an exciting project: five newly-commissioned pieces by Irish composers Elaine Agnew, John Kinsella, Gerald Barry, Sebastian Adams and Gerry Murphy. These pieces were inspired by panels of the Ros Tapestry, which depicts the history of the area.
