On Sunday 28th April, Daniel Rowland visits the National Gallery of Ireland for a chamber music concert organised by the Royal Irish Academy of Music. He will be performing in his capacity as International Visiting Artist at RIAM alongside other members of the faculty and some advanced students.
Following several highly successful appearances with the City of Joensuu Orchestra over recent years, performing concerto no. 2 by Philip Glass, and the Vivaldi/Piazzolla “Eight Seasons” with conductor Arie van Beek, the orchestra has invited him to return – this time to perform Lindberg’s Violin Concerto no. 1. He has just arrived there for rehearsals, and the concert takes place on Thursday evening. The conductor is Jurjen Hempel.
Rowland - pictured above with the Guarneri del Gesu - says:
"I am delighted, excited and honoured to be given this beautiful violin on loan from the Dutch Musical Instrument Foundation. It's the 1736 'ex-Rode' Guarneri del Gesu. It's a violin with an incredible history and I'm hugely looking forward to discovering all the secrets hidden within! My big thanks to Frits Schutte and to all at the foundation for making this possible!"
