Triskel is Going Off-Site to Youghal for a World Premiere
St Mary’s Collegiate Church in Youghal is the place to be on Saturday 24 September for the world premiere of “Jubal’s Air” by Kevin Volans. Triskel Arts Centre in association with Youghal 2020 and Living Youghal commissioned this piece to mark the 800th Anniversary of St. Mary’s in 2020. So we’ve only had to wait two extra years to hear it!
Scored for Uilleann Pipes (David Power) and two String Quartets (Contempo Quartet, Ficino Quartet), this remarkable and beautiful composition is by renowned composer Kevin Volans. Internationally renowned conductor David Brophy will lead the live world premiere.
“Jubal’s Air” will be a stunning experience when it is performed live in the beautiful and historic setting of St. Mary’s. The joining together of not one but two string quartets when taken together with the solo virtuosity of David Power’s Uilleann Pipes will be an unforgettable and unique event. “Jubal’s Air” is a new and permanent legacy created especially for this important anniversary in Youghal, and will itself be added as a notable event in the history of the Church.
