Listen back to RTÉ lyric fm's Culture File on our September concert series, 'Towards Enlightenment,' featuring an interview with exuberant guest director Roy Goodman, and some behind-the-scenes recording of rehearsals. Originally broadcast on Wednesday 25th September, 2013.
Our September 2013 tour 'Towards Enlightenment' with guest director, Roy Goodman received fantastic feedback from audiences and critics alike!
Our soloists received particular praise, with natural horn play Anneke Scott's performance described as "astonishing... She seemed to defy the laws of physics" (Irish Times) while Lisa Beznosiuk "demonstrated what a gorgeously warm tone could come from the two-keyed wooden flute" (Irish Examiner).
IBO's Artistic Director, Monica Huggett, has been nominated for a Grammy award for her recording of Bach Orchestral Suites.
Our Masterworks Series in January 2010 was selected as one of the highlights for the year by The Irish Times Critics.
From Vivaldi's inspired violin writing in the 4 Seasons to Bach's varied instrumentation in his Brandenburgs, this series represented a unique opportunity to hear the three greatest collections of instrumental concertos of the baroque period.
