Six accomplished composers from Ireland are featured in this album, five of them very much contemporary and thriving, and one, Ina Boyle, who died in 1967 leaving a fascinating catalog of works which are very rarely performed- indeed her name has all but been forgotten. Most of the pieces here are for voice and piano, though two, those by Buckley and Clarke, are for voice with precussion and some electronic dubbing and looping in the case of the Clarke which is an off the wall setting of James Joyce. Aylish Kerrigan is one of the foremost interpreters of contemporary Irish vocal music, and of Brecht, and her one-woman Braodway-style shows won acclaim when given in New York, Paris, Berlin and Dublin. She is a guest professor at Wuhan Conservatory in China where she gives masterclasses in performance of Lieder and has recorded Schoenberg's Op. 15 and songs by Ives for release in 2017. Her accompanist Dearbhla Collins has performed worldwide especially in German lieder, contemporary art song, and theater music. Each of these works is a world premiere recording.
