Trio Festivale will be performing the program “The Great Hunger” in their U.S. tour in September, which is sponsored and promoted by Culture Ireland, the government arts agency of Ireland. The program “The Great Hunger” is an all-Irish related program, including Frank Martin’s Trio on Irish Folk Tunes, new arrangements of Irish traditional music for the ensemble, and at the center of the program, a newly commissioned poetry and music work, “The Great Hunger”; by composer Ian Wilson. The new work celebrates one of the most influential works of poetry by the great Patrick Kavanagh (1904-67), combining poetry and music in the performance.
