December Songs – Concert
Roisin Toal & Brian Connor present ‘December Songs’ is a song cycle by multi award winning American composer Maury Yeston (Titanic, Grand Hotel, Nine). The songs describe a cold winter walk through Central Park in New York, and memories of life, loss and love as they occupy the mind of the works’ single character. The composer was inspired to write this piece by the great song cycle of Franz Schubert – ‘Die Wintereisse’. The ten songs range in mood from poetic to angered, from nostalgic to hopeful, though all the songs are tuneful and beautifully crafted.
Special guest joining Roisin & Brian is Dundalk based violinist Bróna Cahill (co-leader RTE Concert Orchestra), who will play some light favourites and additional christmas songs.
