One of Ireland's best-known and most accomplished musicians and composers, Mícheál Ó Suilleabháin, and a staggering ensemble of Irish musicians, perform his most vibrant and evocative music with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
This captivating programme features Mícheál's Phoenix Rising Suite - the score to the documentary Pioneers and Aviators - premiered earlier this year with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
Sean-nόs master Iarla Ó Lionáird lends his striking voice to traditional airs in Mícheál's gorgeous arrangements. Soprano Deirdre Moynihan, New Dublin Voices and world-renowned sax player Kenneth Edge perform the poignant Madison's Descent. Ó Suilleabháin's Termon is brought to life by uilleann piper Pádraic Keane, while Mícheál performs his exhilarating (Must Be More) Crispy on piano.
