Aoife Burke Bittersweet Symphony

    • Society & Culture

Hello and welcome to Bittersweet Symphony, a podcast where classical musicians share the bitter, the sweet and the bittersweet of life when the concert halls shut their doors, the audiences vanished, and the music stopped.

I’m Cliodhna Ryan and I'm a violinist. In this first episode of the podcast I’m talking with cellist Aoife Burke. Selected by The Arts Council as a recipient of a Next Generation Artist Bursary 2020, Aoife is a member of the Opalio Piano Trio and the Banbha String Quartet, supported by the National String Quartet Foundation. She currently holds a residency at the Triskel Arts Centre in Cork City, where she curates the 6 Summertime Concerts Series and the Spotlight Chamber Music Series, which she founded in 2017.

This interview was recorded in August 2021.
