Austrian conductor Thomas Zehetmair makes his debut with the Irish Chamber Orchestra in Waterford and Limerick in April.

The Iritsh Chamber Orchestra's NEW WORLD programme features masterworks by Dvofiák, Barber and Schoenberg conducted by celebrated Austrian maestro Thomas Zehetmair in Waterford (in association with Symphony Club of Waterford & Waterford Music) and Limerick on 12 and 13 April respectively.

Zehetmair has fashioned a highly successful and broadly eclectic career. He is a virtuoso violinist of international repute, a chamber musician with his own critically acclaimed quartet and above all, a much sought-after conductor among leading international orchestras, enjoying widespread acclaim.

Zehetmair’s selection features three defining works from the romantic era written within a seventy-year window. Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (1899) is nothing short of extraordinary when performed with an astonishing mixture of hair-trigger precision and high emotion by the ICO. Schoenberg’s ‘non-Aryan’ works disappeared

THIS Good Friday and Easter Saturday, Darren Skelton brings his View from the Blue live show back for a third outing. In 2015, the show sold out three nights in Central Arts…in 2016 it sold out another three nights at the same venue and a night in Garter Lane three weeks later by popular demand!

This year’s show is titled “Close to the Bone” and that should give you some idea about what you can expect to hear. Previous shows have featured music, videos, dancing and plenty of nostalgic images from our childhood. If you’re a regular reader of the View from the Blue column you’ll know that topics can range from religion, to sex, anxiety and everything in between. Such was Darren’s aversion to writing a press release about himself, he hired another journalist to do the job for him.

Hailing from Florida, Jim White, songrwiter, film-maker and visual artist, comes to Waterford, courtesy of Subterranean Sounds. Jim released his now legendary debut album, ‘Wrong-Eyed Jesus’ in 1997 and played his part alongside Wilco, Ryan Adams and The Jayhawks in creating the Americana movement. Talking Heads’ David Byrne is such a fan that he signed him to his Luaka Bop label; and since then White has released a string of high quality albums.

His gothic Americana can have a cinematic feel, incorporating many curious and illuminating characters and is instilled with a sense of the broken beauty of humanity.

A Jim White show is an quirky experience and no two gigs are the same. He mixes songs from his formidable back catalogue with quirky tales of his experiences from life on the road.

Jim White, accompanied by guitar virtuoso Clive Barnes, plays Phil
