BOOK OF LIGHT AND SHADOW
Dundalk Gaol — Friday 17 June, 8 p.m.

The Book of Light and Shadow is two books. It is a Book of Angels, a collection of 300 mystic tunes by the New York master of sound-magic John Zorn, and it is a book of photographs – heliographs, as they were originally called, pictures made by the light of the sun.
Zorn is choosy about the musicians he lets play his Book of Angels. For this concert he has given permission to the outstanding group Saltarello, on strings and percussion, who will make a recording for his Tzadik label.
The group is joined by glorious French soprano Hélène Fauchere for Heliography, commissioned for this concert from the brilliant Lithuanian minimalist Onute Narbutaite.
Tickets €10 available here https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/book-of-light-and-shadow-jo...15618

BOOK OF LOVE
St. Nicholas Church of Ireland Dundalk - Saturday 18 June 1pm

Garth Knox plays the viola d’amore, viola of love, a gorgeous, resonant instrument associated throughout history with the warmth of love. The cellist Agnès Vesterman joins with Knox through a program of musical love and folly. From the eerie magic of it's sympathetic strings, the "viola of love" can turn many heads and introduces us to new, and unexpected sound worlds, from which we are loath to depart. The program is punctuated by three of Garth Knox's enigmatic miniatures for violin, the Violin Spaces, played by the brilliant young Dutch violinist, Diamanda Dramm.
Tickets Free but attendees are asked to register here https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/book-of-love-garth-knox-agn...72771

BOOK OF ELEMENTS
Dundalk Gaol, Dundalk — Saturday 18 June, 3 p.m.

The English virtuoso Ian Pace has been associated with this gripping project from the beginning, and comes to Dundalk for a rare complete performance.

BOOK OF QUIET
Dundalk Basement Gallery — Saturday 18 June, 5.30 p.m

German composer Jakob Ullmann writes music in which the infinitesimal becomes momentous. For Louth he has created a new piece for live bassoon and recorded voice, to be performed by the extraordinary musician-improviser Dafne Vicente-Sandoval. The title, Müntzer’s Stern (Müntzer´s Star), refers to Thomas Müntzer, the most radical spirit of the early Reformation. Tickets are limited for this music of intimacy and extreme quiet.

St Nicholas Church of Ireland, Dundalk — Saturday 18 June, 8 p.m
.
This culminating event introduces the Swiss composer Jürg Frey, whose music is noted for its gentle wide spaces, allowing listeners to revel in the “corporeal splendour of undiluted sound” (The Guardian). Three works of his are on the programme, including the mesmerizing 24 Wörter, where 24 words provide the entire text for a journey through 24 songs.

Completing the evening are more songs, by the Polish romantic Henryk Gorecki, and Galina Ustvolskaya’s stupendous violin sonata. Musicians include Jürg Frey, Ian Pace, Diamanda Dramm, Hélène Fauchere and Gavan Ring
