Ilse de Ziah: Magic Irish Airs

In wundervollen Landschaften machte sich die Cellistin des Opernorchesters Cork,

Ilse de Ziah, auf die Suche nach den Ursprüngen irischer Musik.

Gefunden hat sie sanfte und klanggewaltige Töne, die die Seele berühren.

Auf der Solotournee gastiert sie im Fischereimuseum.

Ein kurzer preisgekrönter Film über ihre Recherchen zu den

traditionellen irischen Klängen stimmt auf diese Konzerterlebnis ein.

Concerto Extravaganza!!

March 20, 2015 | Posted in Concerts | By

On the 15th April I will be playing the Khachaturian Cello Concerto in E minor with the City of Cork Symphony Orchestra. It will be a very exciting event, as three concertos will be performed on the night, the cello concerto and two huge favourites, Rachmaninoff 2 and Tchaikovsky 1, played by virtuoso American pianist David Syme. The Khachaturian cello concerto is an incredible and epic reflection of the great Khachaturian’s life. This concert is also important as it is the final one in my Masters in performance at the Cork School of Music. Soon you must all refer to me as Master de Ziah! So if you live near Cork, or want to fly in, the concert will be great, and I will buy you a drink afterwards if you call me Master…

The City of Cork Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Keith Pascoe is proud to present "Concerto Extravaganza!" a concert of three concertos, featuring American virtuoso David Syme, at the Aula Maxima, UCC on 15 April 2015. He will play TWO concertos by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff in the one concert. The third concerto, Khachaturian’s epic Cello Concerto in E minor will be played by Australian cellist Ilse De Ziah.

David Syme, American piano virtuoso living in Ireland, has had a long and colorful career. He has performed in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Wigmore Hall, and in major venues in 17 European countries, Canada and Mexico. An alumnus of Juilliard and Indiana University, he was a protégé of the legendary Jorge Bolet. He was schooled in the grand tradition of the great masters, and also studied with Ozan Marsh, Sascha Gorodnitzki, Ania Dorfmann, Louis Kentner and Constance Keene. He has recorded two dozen CDs with such orchestras as the Royal Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphony, and the Czech National Symphony.
“I am delighted to be making my Cork début, at last!”, Syme quips light-heartedly. “Ireland has been my home since 2005, and West Cork is my base. I am thrilled to be playing with an orchestra that has made it to the Guinness Book of Records!”
Since arriving in Ireland in 2005, he has been steadily forging a reputation as one of the finest pianists ever to grace its shores. He is best known there for his “Living-Room Concerts”, held about 25 times a year in his West Cork home on the Beara Peninsula. This series was profiled by Mary Kennedy on RTE Television’s “Nationwide” in 2011. These concerts are social and musical events, with people driving from all corners of the country to attend. One of David’s biggest fans has been the immortal Maureen O’Hara, who prior to her recent move to the U.S., annually celebrated her birthday by listening to him play. Christy Moore, Ireland’s most-loved musician, has been a loyal supporter as well. David Syme performs regularly throughout Ireland and the European mainland as well as in the U.S.

It promises to be a great run-up to the CCSO’s Summer concert with José Carreras and Katharine Jenkins in Musgrave Park on 20 June.
