Tonight at King’s Place sees the second of two concerts of new Irish music for violin and piano. (For my review of the first concert, see here.) In Solos and Duos for Violin and Piano: 2, Ioana Petcu-Colan (violin) and Michael McHale (piano) explore the lyrical side of contemporary Irish music, taking as a starting point the individual sounds worlds of the violin and piano.
