Discovering Ina Boyle

Help us to bring the music of this important Irish composer to a new generation.

Please help raise £10,000 to record a landmark CD of orchestral music by Ina Boyle. This recording by the BBC Concert Orchestra will be conducted by Ronald Corp with soloists Nadège Rochat (cello) and Benjamin Baker (violin), currently a young artist of YCAT (Young Classical Artist Trust).

Ina Boyle ( composed a huge body of work. She is recognised as one of Ireland's most important composers and all her music, largely unperformed, is preserved in Trinity College Library, Dublin, awaiting rediscovery. She was a pupil of Vaughan Williams and travelled regularly to London for lessons with him. He thought very highly of her music. However, despite early success, (one of her works was conducted by Sir Henry Wood at the Proms in 1927), she has been largely forgotten. Her great friend, the composer Elizabeth Maconchy, encouraged her to relocate to London but she would not leave the home she loved and family who needed her. 

When they died, she lived alone, composed everyday, inspired by the beautiful Wicklow countryside. At last, as predicted by Vaughan Williams, the music of Ina Boyle is now beginning to be recognised internationally. This landmark CD with the BBC Concert Orchestra will launch the composer in the UK.
