ceol mor : ceol beag

by The Whistlebinkies



A live recording of the performance by The Whistlebinkies and the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong in Hong Kong City Hall on January 17, 2006, conducted by David Gwilt. The premiere was on October 13 2002 by The Whistlebinkies and Ayrshire Youth Orchestra. The Gaelic title suggests 'big music and little music', revealed in counterposing the orchestra against the smaller folk group. A harmonious unity is achieved by the end.

The Whistlebinkies Glasgow, UK

Bandcamp material is not found on the band's Claddagh, Greentrax and Lochshore CDs.
