Gare St Lazare Ireland

Here All Night: The Sound of Beckett

★★★★ The Irish Times | ★★★★ The Telegraph | ★★★★ The Daily Telegraph
Here All Night is a rich tapestry of classical music, soaring solo and choir singing, and sparkling Samuel Beckett excerpts.
An exploration of the use of music and sound in Beckett’s work from Gare St Lazare Ireland, the "unparalleled Beckett Champions" (The New York Times), in celebration of Beckett's birthday.
The captivating central vocal performance from Judy Hegarty Lovett is supported by a all-female choir in perfect harmony. 
Accompaniment is provided by piano (James Longford), cello (Christopher Allan) and haunting, Irish traditional-inspired Hardanger d'Amore (Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh of The Gloaming).
Conor Lovett performs excerpts from Watt, First Love, Malone Dies, The Unnamable and Words & Music with great humour and understanding.
With an original score by UK composer Paul Clark, the work has evolved to include a collaboration with distinguished Irish artist Brian O’Doherty (fomerly aka Patrick Scott) as well as movement by Irish choreographer John Scott.
