Johann Friedrich Fasch: Concerto in G, Lorraine Howley and the SBO.
Arrangements and original songs written and performed by Sarah Crummy
- A. Mozart: Piano concerto in B flat major K 450 soloist Aileen Cahill
Mozart's mature piano concertos are one of the most loved parts of the classical repertoire. This concerto, no 15 was composed in 1784 and was performed with the composer as soloist that year in Vienna. The solo writing is demanding, and wind instruments are used more independently than earlier concertos.
Aileen Cahill has been closely associated with the IMAs since their earlier inceptions, held in the Black Box in the un-remodelled Model; as accompanist, chamber musician and piano soloist Aileen has had many IMA appearances, and she has figured in a number of streamed programmes over the last sixteen months, doing much to keep the thread unbroken. With the SBO, Aileen has performed a number of Mozart’s piano concertos in Sligo – the last time in February 2020, as the clouds of the pandemic were gathering, when she performed the G major no 17.
Sarah Crummy is a well-known Sligo singer-songwriter. She had been programmed to appear in August IMA but unfortunately became unavailable. We are delighted that she will appear this month.
Lorraine Howley, principal flute in the SBO, is another musician who was importantly involved in maintaining the production of monthly IMA programmes throughout Covid, performing in many chamber works as well as concertos. The work by Fasch is by way of a taster for Sligo Festival of Baroque Music which takes place 24th – 26th September – the sbo will present a concerto programme, illustrating some of the music being produced around the same time as J S Bachs famous Brandenburg Concertos.
A native of county Sligo, Aileen is a pianist best known as a répétiteur and chamber musician. In 2007, she completed her Masters in Solo Piano under Dr. John O'Conor at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, and in 2011, her Masters in Piano Accompaniment under Catherina Lemoni-O'Doherty at DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama. At this time, she was also awarded a Fellowship Diploma for vocal and instrumental accompaniment from the London College of Music.
Grateful acknowledgement of the support of the Arts Council and Sligo County Council is made, as well our thanks to those who have made generous donations or have in other ways offered assistance to keep IMAs going over the past months.
