A rare combination

Music for Wexford, in association with Music Network, is delighted to present the first recital in Ireland by the Franco-Spanish classical guitarist Thibaut Garcia and the German cellist Isang Enders.  This will take place in St. Iberius Church, Wexford on Sunday 22nd April 2018 at 3.30pm.

This unique coming together of two of classical music’s brightest stars will showcase the versatility of their instruments through a range of music by Bach, Granados, Villa-Lobos, Gaspar Cassadó, Stephen Goss, Dušan Bogdanović, and a new commission from Benjamin Dwyer.

Recently hailed by Classical Guitar Magazine as “the new face of classical guitar”, 23-year-old Garcia has already cut a swathe through the world’s foremost guitar competitions — taking first prize in six— thanks to his gossamer light touch, wonderfully sensitive interpretations and a repertoire that runs the gamut from Bach to Piazzolla to world premieres of contemporary compositions by composers such as Jean-Frédéric Neuburger and Vincent A. Jockin.

At the age of 20, Isang Enders was appointed principal cello of the Dresden Staatskapelle, making him the youngest section leader in Germany. Noted for his clear, penetrating tone and his big-hearted, dynamic performances, Enders has enjoyed collaborations with the Stuttgarter Philharmoniker and Stavanger Symphony orchestras and performs regularly with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra.

Benjamin Dwyer’s ‘sin títolo’, commissioned by Music Network especially for this tour, will receive its premiere in Wexford and will then be performed at each concert on the tour. Dwyer describes his new work as follows:

“…sin títolo (‘without title’) is an instrumental reflection upon a madrigal by Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa. In looking back, however, I needed to realize this music through the refracted lens of four hundred years of ongoing compositional transformation. sin títolo is a not-quite-developed snap shot of Gesualdo’s music”.

Music Network tours are funded by the Arts Council and are presented in association with RTÉ lyric fm.
