Tailte Cré-Umha / Bronze Lands

Robert Curgenven

Tailte Cré-Umha / Bronze Lands




St. Fin Barre's Cathedral

  • Regular Price €12
  • Concession €10

50 minutes

Cork-based Australian composer Robert Curgenven returns to 
Cork Midsummer Festival for the world premiere of a new piece for 
pipe organ following his sold-out Sculpting the Air concerts in 
2017. The same sound system also returns to enhance St Fin Barre’s 
incredible pipe organ and acoustics, the sound once again set 
around the audience to create a single architectural instrument.

The concert’s score draws on Ireland’s relations with Cornwall 
and Mediterranean Europe. 5000 years ago, coming into the Bronze 
Age, Ireland’s copper and Cornwall’s tin traversed the continent  to
make bronze. Tailte cré-umha uses this navigation of the landscape
itself as the score as those people and materials travel land, sea, sky
and Europe at a time of change.

Supported by Cork City Council Arts Office, St Fin Barre’s 
Cathedral, St Mary’s COI Marmullane & North Presentation Convent.
