The Irish Chamber Orchestra embarks on its summer tour from 10-20 July visiting eight venues including Kinsale (Kinsale Arts Festival) , Kilmallock, Ballingarry, Tipperary, Dun Chaoin, Kilkee, Birr and Clifden. The tour has been kindly sponsored by Bord Gáis.

This tour features a very special work, The Turn – Dance in Your Blood by Kinsale-born composer, Linda Buckley . Colin Dunne provides a mesmeric dance to Buckley’s stunning new composition. “This new work shows a different facet of my compositional style, full of rhythmic energy and drama. I am excited collaborating with Colin Dunne, exploring interaction and interplay between dance and sound. There is an added electronic element to this, where amplification of dance steps is used to trigger live processing of sound” says Buckley.

Linda’s music has been described as ‘strange and beautiful’ (Boston Globe) and has been performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Dresden Sinfoniker Orchestra and at international festivals from Holland to Korea. As well as composing, Linda lectures at Trinity College and is currently RTÉ lyric fm Composer- in-Residence.

Katherine Hunka has been captivating audiences big and small throughout Ireland and beyond as Leader of the Irish Chamber Orchestra. Along with the ICO, Katherine has championed the music of Irish composers including works by Bill Whelan, John Kinsella, Míchael Ó Súilleabháin and Elaine Agnew. She has performing concertos with Pekka Kuusisto, Nigel Kennedy and Anthony Marwood and she has directed the ICO in distinguished concert halls across Europe, Asia and the US. Katherine has been guest leader with the Manchester Camerata, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Royal National Scottish Orchestra.

Erkki-Sven Tüür’s exciting Action - Passion – Illusion features high-octane string writing, fuelled by invigorating articulation, breathtakingly delivered by the ICO. Dvořák's Op. 54 Nos. 1&4 comprised originally of eight waltzes, two or which he arranged for string orchestra. The first is amiable and relaxed, although a more plaintive mood is struck in the slightly brisker second. Dvořák's influence on his star pupil is very evident in Suk’s Serenade for Strings his most popular work.
