Body & Soul invites listeners into the unique sound-world of New Music performed on historical instruments that are usually associated with Early Music from the Baroque period. Contemporary works for period instruments bridge time periods and diverse cultures. Body & Soul includes Irish and world premieres in a musical voyage in which the past inspires the present and the present illuminates the past, creating a continuum of sound and movement that is relevant, current, and transformative.
This chamber music programme is curated by Yonit Kosovske, who gratefully acknowledges her 2022 Arts Council Music Bursary Award for supporting her research, development, and continued exploration of New Music for Harpsichord as both a solo and collaborative instrument.
