This was a world class concert that left the audience elctrified. Traditional pieces were played with the freshness and vitality of brand new compositions whilst retaining all of the structures, feel and spirit of a classic take on Irish music. Likewise, new compositions and in some cases new artists came with the virtuosity and performance quality of established classics. With a stage shared by 14 players and singers, any of whom could have fronted a concert in their own right, Simon Glinn of The Liverpool Philharmonic has done the impossible and created a new genre in live performance. This was a superb evening, the very best way to experience Irish music live and hopefully a concept that will be around for a very long time indeed.
