Irish Symphonia


Irish Showtime
3CD Set

Catalogue Number: SCM04

Irish Showtime

Irish music has a long and venerable history, from the itinerant harpers and singers of mediaeval times to the rock and pop stars of today. Drinking songs, jigs and reels, laments, sentimental ballads and Irish Choral music all played a part in the rich musical tapestry of Irish music.

One of the most surprising developments of recent years is the unbridled popularity of Irish Stepdancing in the form of stage shows such as Riverdance, Lord Of the Dance and Feet Of Flames.

The sudden rise of stepdancing began in 1994 when World Champion Michael Flatley was joined by a talented troupe of Irish dancers on the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest to perform a piece called Riverdance. The ecstatic crowd at the Point Depot in Dublin erupted at the conclusion of the exciting dance routine and the show was watched by a similarly enthusiastic TV audience of several million people.

Soon, the seven-minute routine was expanded into a full stage show, featuring music by Bill Whelan, performed on a variety of traditional Irish and contemporary electronic instruments. When Michael Flatley left the hugely successful Riverdance troupe, he produced and starred in two more stage productions Lord Of the Dance and Feet Of Flames.

This remarkable 3CD set was recorded at Windmill Studios, Dublin and includes the highlights from each of the stage productions as well as superb recordings of Irish favourites – almost three hours of outstanding musical performances.
