Ailish Tynan features on Airs from another planet, a new recording of chamber music and song by Judih Weir, with the Hebrides Ensemble. On this recording Ailish performs Weir’s song cycles Nuits d’Afrique and Really?
Nuits d’Afrique was conceived as a companion piece to Maurice Ravel’s Chansons madécasses, and was dedicated to Ailish when it was written in 2015, with the premiere at Wigmore Hall in 2017. She also performed these two song cycles on a concert tour with the Hebrides Ensemble earlier this year.
