This year is Benjamin Britten's centenary and the RTÉ Symphony Orchestra is celebrating in some style with the second in a series entitled Big on Britten. Declan McGovern, RTÉ NSO General Manager joined Artbeat's Des FitzGerald to talk about this fascinating composer.

Born in the fishing port of Lowestoft in Suffolk, on England’s east coast, the sea always had a strong pull on Britten and the Four Sea Interludes is the the most outstanding example of this influence. Composed as orchestral pieces to divide the opera Peter Grimes: Dawn; Sunday Morning; Moonlight and Storm capture the North Sea in all its moods. Britten spent the early part of the Second World War in America and the concert reflects this with Bernstein’s On the Town (Three Dance Episodes) and Copland’s ballet score Appalachian Spring. Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, based on a selection of six nocturnal poems by, among others, Blake, Jonson and Keats also features.

Photographer Aga Maru joined Des FitzGerald in studio to talk about her new exhibition 'Sunday Utopia'. From the press release: "While most of Dublin's residents are relaxing in their homes eating Sunday lunch and reading the papers, Maru finds herself wandering through empty streets observing the other side of the Sunday Utopia. The sedate atmosphere cherished by most, for Aga as an adoptive citizen, it feels strangely intimidating. What on another day might feel like a new home, stripped of its midweek bustle and vigour, seems foreign and desolate to Maru."

Sunday Utopia runs from July 31 – August 4 at 33 Mill Street agamaruphotography.com for more on Aga's work.

Earlier in the week Adrian Colwell caught up with Aine Macken the founder of Art Clash night classes. See artclash.net for full details.
