Virtuoso violinist Rachel Kolly d’Alba and pianist Christian Chamorel present what promises to be a sparkling classical recital with a French theme at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Monday April 14 at 8pm.
The recital is part of a prestigious nationwide Music Network tour.
Swiss violinist Rachel Kolly d’Alba is a child prodigy who made her debut as a concerto soloist at the age of 12. Since then, she has been lauded both for her electrifying intensity on stage and her beautifully nuanced recordings of works by composers including Saint-Saëns, Chausson, Gershwin, Ravel and Ysaÿe.
She has performed with many of Europe’s finest orchestras, including the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, WDR Cologne, Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla, and the Rotterdam Philharmonic.
For this tour she will be joined by the award-winning Swiss pianist Christian Chamorel, a much sought-after chamber musician and soloist who has performed at such venues as the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Palau de la Musica in Valencia, and London’s Wigmore Hall. An evening of musical magic in prospect.
