Composer Dave Flynn is renowned internationally for evocatively and provocatively blending ancient Irish and contemporary classical sounds. Stories from the Old World, produced by 10-time Grammy-winner Judith Sherman (Kronos Quartet), features three of his most important works.

Breanndán Begley’s spellbinding Gaelic recitation guides the title-track, Stories from the Old World. The piece reveals the poetry and humour of the misunderstood Kerry storyteller Peig Sayers. The IMO String Quartet and Mick O’Brien’s majestic uilleann pipes illuminate the pulsating score.

The RTÉ Contempo Quartet give searing accounts of The Cranning and its sequel The Keening. Recorded here for the first time, Flynn’s trailblazing mid-noughties String Quartets have been hailed in performances from New York to London, Paris to Moscow.
