The Brendan Voyage Movt. 07 - 'Journey to Iceland'

The Brendan Voyage Movt. 07 - 'Journey to Iceland'

Shaun Davey

With his first major work, 'The Brendan Voyage' (1980), Shaun Davey opened up totally new musical territory. For the first time, in a suite especially written for uilleann pipes soloist Liam O'Flynn, a traditional musician was integrated with a classical orchestra. The uilleann pipe passages in the Brendan suite, capturing all the force, emotion and beauty of Irish traditional music, here blend with the symphony orchestra in a synthesis of old and new which has enchanted audiences around the world.

Journey to Iceland is the seventh movement of this ten movement work and is scored for full orchestra and uilleann pipes. From the Faroes Brendan's boat sets off for Iceland. On the way it is the subject of fascination for a great variety of fish, including whales and dolphins. The middle section is a dialogue between the 'Brendan' and layers of fish in the waters below.
