Summary
  • The connections between baroque and traditional Irish music are explored in this fascinating new recording, which brings together the traditional music skills of uilleann piper David Power with acclaimed early music group Camerata Kilkenny. The opening track, Carolan's Si bheag, si mhor sets the tone for the album, beginning with the solo pipes before being underpinned by Barry Guy's jazz-influenced bass-riffs and then the singing strings of the rest of the group. What follows in compositions by Telemann, Purcell and Leclair, and a number of traditional tunes is a celebration of Ireland's musical history. Key to the performance of both styles of music is ornamentation - the use of grace notes, runs and trills - which brings the written notes alive, giving the music a feeling of improvisation. So while the music derives from the eighteenth century, this live exploratory edge really gives these performances a contemporary feel.

Camerata Kilkenny is regularly joined by guest artists including the Dutch soprano Lenneke Ruiten, the baroque flautist Wilbert Hazelzet (Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra), the Swiss cellist Thomas Demenga, Calmus Ensemble (Leipzig), Rachel Beckett (principal flute English Baroque Soloists), Sebastien Marq (recorder player with Les Arts Florissant) and most recently by the Croatian baroque violinist Bojan Cicic (Academy of Ancient Music) at the 2015 Kilkenny Arts Festival.
