CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: The celebrated Irish dance extravaganza first seen by hordes a quarter century ago has been updated with “innovative and spectacular lighting, projection, stage, and costume designs” as well as a new soundtrack recording by composer Bill Whelan. Riverdance began as an “electrifying and innovative seven-minute dance piece” during the interval of the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, and was then developed into a full-length stage show; it premiered in Dublin in early 1995, breaking box office records, and has since toured the world multiple times. “The music had moved into a very different position from when we first recorded it,” Whelan says of the latest version. “In this case, the music had been in the ether for a lot of the musicians, many of whom weren’t even born when I first wrote the score. As a result, these players come to this recording with a unique virtuosity - distinguished with both a familiarity and an energetic freshness.” — KCM
