Culture Night- Raymond Deane: 40 Years in 20 minutes

In celebration of his 60th birthday year, join distinguished Irish composer Raymond Deane as he performs a selection of his own compositions for solo piano.

Venue map: Boydell Room, House 5, Trinity College Dublin September 21st at 6pm.

'My work embodies contradictions that I don’t attempt to overcome: indeed, its character is probably defined by the productive friction of contradictions.'
Raymond Deane is a pianist, novelist, essayist, political activist and a one of Ireland’s most renowned composers. The programme features pieces from key stages of Deane’s career, from his first piano cycle, the Orphic Pieces (1970) to After-Piece No 1 “By the clear dark fountain” composed 20 years later, finishing with Duskiss from his ‘nocturnal diary’ of twelve night pieces for solo piano (2010-2011).
The concert will be followed by a public discussion between Raymond Deane and Evangelia Rigaki, Director of the Music Composition Centre and an audience Q and A.

Presented by Crash Ensemble and the Music Composition Centre, Trinity College. This concert is the opening event of the Music Composition Centre’s 2013-14 season and part of Crash Ensemble’s curated series.
