Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council presented two première performances of Double Trio, a new work by composer Ian Wilson on April 4th 2009 in Marlay Park House and Kilternan Church of Ireland.
Double Trio was written during the summer and autumn of 2008 as the main focus of a one-year residency in the Glencullen area of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County. Double Trio is written for three improvisers - playing saxophone, double bass and drums - and three classical musicians - playing violin, vibraphone and harp - and takes its initial inspiration from speech rhythms and melodies. The musicians are Cathal Roche, saxophonist, Daniel Bodwell, bass and Stu Ritchie, drums alongside Mia Cooper, violin, Cliona Doris, harp and Richard O'Donnell, vibraphone. Double Trio lasts approximately 45 minutes and is in eight main sections. A CD recording of the work was also made.
Double Trio is part of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council's 'Place and Identity' programme of Per Cent for Art commissions funded through the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.
