View of Rutland Square, Dublin (circa 1799) by James Malton

Concert-going in Dublin in the 18th century was very much part of the social life in the Irish capital. Given that Ireland was on the periphery of Europe, it could well be imagined how Dublin, in particular, was unlikely to be a place on the itinerary of internationally renowned musicians. It is therefore surprising how active musical life in Dublin was, and how many musicians of extraordinary artistic achievement did visit the city including Geminiani, Arne, and the protean Handel. The musical riches of 18th century Dublin will be surveyed in a concert entitled “Beyond the Fanlight” presented by Early Music Princeton on May 12th, 2023. The performers for this entertainment are Mezzo-soprano Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, harpsichordist and organist Kerry Heimann, and John Burkhalter, narrator and player of English and small flutes.
