TESTIMONY – Irish Chamber Orchestra & Barry McGovern

TESTIMONY – Irish Chamber Orchestra & Barry McGovern

Thurs 27 June, 8:00pm  |  Tickets: €22 / €20 (conc) 

TESTIMONY, a fascinating piece of music theatre, captures extracts from the powerful memoirs of Shostakovich, as dictated to musicologist, Solomon Volkov. It explores Shostakovich’s relationship with Stalin and composers Glazunov, Stravinsky, Britten, and Bach. The Irish Chamber Orchestra, Ireland’s most dynamic ensemble, weave their emotive music throughout this powerful production. Barry McGovern has had a lauded career in theatre, film, television and radio. His portrayal of Shostakovich is a subtle and convincing study of a complicated man aging.
