Peter Whelan champions the music of Matthew Dubourg in his recording debut as Artistic Director of the Irish Baroque Orchestra. Dubourg, a pupil of Francesco Geminiani, was a charismatic virtuoso and composer who Whelan believes deserves to be acknowledged as one of Ireland's most influential musicians. With many of his compositions having only recently come to light, most are presented here for the very first time including the world premiere of the ode 'Crowned with a more illustrious light'. The eclectic programme showcases a composer whose music is shot-through with humanity, charm, virtuosity and wit. The works includes arrangements of Irish traditional melodies, music written for royal celebrations and virtuosic violin solos in the fashionable Italian style. A Corelli violin sonata and a violin concerto by Vivaldi paint a picture of the musical landscape in which Dubourg's creativity flourished. This recording is an exciting rediscovery of long forgotten, but truly wonderful, music from Ireland's past.
