Irish Songmakers Recital: With Niall Kinsella and Amy Ní Fhearraigh
Stradbally, Co. Waterford
5 June 2023
This recital sees the return of rising star Amy Ní Fhearraigh to Blackwater Valley Opera Festival for a programme of music from the German and Irish art-song traditions, accompanied by Niall Kinsella in the unique setting of Woodhouse Estate.

Liedtreffen, or “Song-Meeting”, is a unique musical encounter between the German and Irish art-song traditions, with music ranging from Franz Schubert to Seóirse Bodley and poetry from Thomas Moore to Goethe. Exploring the confluence between German and Irish culture, this programme includes the German-born, Irish-settled composer Aloys Fleischmann’s stunning Irish language song-cycle, Trí hAmhráin.

Irish soprano Amy Ní Fhearraigh is an alumna of the Irish National Opera Studio 2018-19 and is currently based in Hannover, Germany. Pianist Niall Kinsella has fast established himself as one of Ireland’s most exciting and sought-after accompanists and art-song specialists – described by BBC Music Magazine as “a meticulous collaborator”.
