When
Sunday, November 13, 2011
20:00 - All Ages Buy Tickets

Ballymaloe House, Ballymaloe
Co. Cork

This new multi - purpose venue is a sensitively converted 17th century farmyard building. The Grain Store is 50 yards from the main house. Its spacious lime washed interior, gooseberry coloured railings and bamboo floor create a pleasant setting for any occasion.

Other Info
The concert will be a selection of atmospheric and fresh sounding music by exceptional Australian composers, including first performances of new works by Ilse de Ziah and Katrina Emtage and the Irish premiere of Elena Kats-Chernin’s Eliza’s Aria for flute (the original aria was made famous as the Lloyds TSB ad) . This will be put into context with another of her pieces, the expansive and invigorating Colours of the Sea.
To celebrate the 80th birthday of May Howlett they will play the evocative Sirocco and Mistral from Wings of the Wind

“Very exciting, very energetic, and at once forceful and sensitive. I am proud to have had my pieces so thoughtfully interpreted. Martinis all round!” John Plankenhorn, composer

Ozmosis
Being far from home has been a source of reflection for many artists over the centuries. Ozmosis was formed in 2008 by three Australians living and working in Cork.
Our objective is to bring works that we grew up with to new audiences and share some of our cultural heritage and outlook.
As well as this we are expanding that heritage by commissioning new works and exploring repertoire that has been freshly created.
€15.00 for concert
Early dinner and Show €60
Dinner, show, B&B €150

Final performance of the Ballymaloe November Music Week
