Music for Galway

Crouching Tiger

Bailey Allen Hall NUIG

At the very start of the festival, we unveil the Galway Cello, fashioned out of the Galway landscape by luthier Kuros Torkzadeh, for many years resident in Galway. Cellissimo opens with the sounds of the Galway Cello, as Naomi Berrill performs a piece by Grammy-winning composer and Galway resident Bill Whelan, who has written a new piece for the cello. Our opening concert then presents the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of the Oscar-winning composer Tan Dun, making his Irish début and performing music from the movie “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” with the unrivalled Italian cellist Giovanni Sollima.
