Irish vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird, called “one of the most dramatic voices in contemporary music” by The Guardian, and “magnificently expressive” by The New York Times, applies his profound and soaring voice to composer Kate Moore’s Bushranger Psychodrama, a new piece created specifically for him, and performed this evening with PUBLIQuartet string quartet. Co-commissioned by Symphony Space and National Concert Hall Dublin.
On February 10 from 2:30 - 4:30, PubliQuartet will conduct masterclass sessions with two learning quartets in a live event at the National Opera Center, New York City. A multi-camera crew will film the event for live stream across the internet to audiences everywhere. Chamber music players wherever they are can watch on their computers in real time and submit their comments and questions via a live chat feed.
Reigning Metropolitan Museum of Art Quartet-in-Residence PUBLIQuartet launched to national attention in October 2016 with their acclaimed “Requiem for a Debate” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
