Igor Stravinsky's First World War music theatre piece tells the dark Faustian fable of a soldier who makes a trade with the devil on the promise of untold wealth and success... or so he is led to believe. A unique opportunity to hear one of Ireland's leading Chamber Music Ensembles bring this masterpiece to life alongside Oscar nominated actor Ciar�n Hinds and contemporary dancer Emily Ayers. Our story telling begins in the first half when we will transport you to Argentina for a musical depiction of the History of the Tango by Astor Piazzolla and we start the concert with some arrangements from De Falla's ballet 'The Three Cornered Hat" "Perhaps it's best to say: it's a cracker. And that's whether your taste is for drama, poetry, modern music, jazz or dance. All the art forms are there, brilliantly delivered." Emer O'Kelly, Sunday Independent. The Fews Ensemble was founded in 2016 and is directed by leading Irish violinist and curator Joanne Quigley McParland. The ensemble brings together the finest musicians and artists from across Europe on a regular basis to present innovative and exciting concerts throughout Ireland. We pride ourselves on thinking outside the box and presenting audiences with fresh approaches to well know masterpieces and introducing them to new or lesser known works. Since 2020 the Fews Ensemble have commissioned 4 new works from living Irish composers and are passionate about collaborating with artists from all disciplines.
