The Large Room, City Hall, Waterford, Thursday 7 December at 7.30pm
Irish composer Marian Ingoldsby will step into the limelight at The Large Room, City Hall, Waterford on Thursday 7 December at 7.30pm to present a solo show featuring music that provided significant signposts to her journey in music. Works by Albeniz, Chopin, Schumann, O’ Carolan and Mompou will feature, as well as some of Ingoldsby’s own piano compositions including Moving Hearts.
Ingoldsby, a Carrick-on-Suir native, has been much in demand with commissions from many ensembles and choral groups over the last thirty years since she won the Fleischmann Prize in 1995. Such commissions include a chamber opera called Hot Food with Strangers, which was premiered by Opera Theatre Company in 1991, and a children’s opera Lily’s Labyrinth for RTE Lyric FM, while much of her instrumental work has been commissioned by the RTE National Symphony Orchestra and the Dublin International Piano Competition. Highly regarded for her facility with texts, her setting of Michael Coady’s poem, The Great Embrace was specially commissioned by Waterford-Music to mark the 75th anniversary of their chamber music series this year. A setting of W.B Yeats’ Never Give All the Heart premiered by baritone Benjamin Appl was described by the Irish Times as the highlight of the recital by the young German star. Ingoldsby combines her composing activities with her teaching at the Department of Creative and Performing Arts at Waterford Institute of Technology and is a much sought after accompanist.
