The next in the Contemporary Music Centre’s ‘Salon’ series takes place on 14 February with guitarist John Feeley. He will give informal read-throughs of works by Eric Sweeney, Three Irish Folktunes (2003), Frank Corcoran, Three Pieces for Guitar (1990) and Rhona Clarke’s 2002 work, Drift-Knot.
One of the most stimulating aspects of a CMC Salon is the opportunity for discussion in a relaxed atmosphere, the only defining characteristic of the event being that it is ‘not a concert’. Audience, performers and composers are all drawn into debate around the music, thus giving one another feedback and exchanging views in a way that rarely happens in new music in Ireland.
The series, initiated experimentally last autumn in conjunction with Project is proving very successful and the audience is growing month by month. There is also a most encouraging response from performers, who are willingly volunteering their services without a fee. To date these have included Alan Smale, violin, Annette Cleary, cello, Paul Roe, clarinet, and Darragh Morgan, violin.
The February Salon takes place in Project, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 at 3.00 pm on Saturday 14 February 2004. Admission is free. Further information: Karen Hennessy, CMC Promotion Manager, CMC, 19 Fishamble Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 8

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…Read More
