Modern View of Ancient Ireland
'Modern View of Ancient Ireland' is a series of works for saxophone and electronics by Irish composers, commissioned by Robert. Each piece in the series deals with a different aspect of Ireland’s rich ancient history and culture.
Describing the beautiful landscapes that surround the island, to the legends and folklore children are taught from a young age, this project is a very personal one to Robert. The addition of electronics along with the personal visions of the contemporary Irish composers provides a modern view of these ancient themes.
