Julian Lloyd Webber stars at Sheen Falls Lodge Classical Weekend, November 21st to 23rd.
Following the success of his performance last year, Julian Lloyd Webber returns to Sheen Falls with a new beautiful programme of classical music.
One of the world’s most popular solo cellists; Julian has premiered more than 50 unique works for cello and has inspired new composition by composers such as Malcolm Arnold, Joaquin Rodrigo, James MacMillian and Philip Glass.
At Sheen Falls, Julian will perform favourite classics by Bach, Brahms, Faure, Saint Saens and Elgar, jazz greats Cleo Laine, Stephane Grappelli and Elton John in addition to works, of course, by his brother Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The Sheen Falls Lodge is a classically appointed country manor and is one of Ireland’s most popular 5 star properties. It is magnificently set overlooking the cascading waters of the Sheen Falls and the waters of Kenmare River with a backdrop of the mighty Cara Mountains just outside the colourful village of Kenmare in County Kerry. An atmosphere of soothing serenity permeates the Sheen Falls Lodge. Harmonious colours, sumptuous sofas and the warmth of a roaring log fire greet you in reception, while throughout resident’s lounges cozy comforts conspire to create an experience of relaxed luxury.
Sheen Falls Lodge is presenting a two night package with a recital each evening. Arriving on the Friday evening, guests will be offered the chance to meet the eminent musician for a drinks reception in the Drawing Room followed by a pre-dinner recital before a relaxing dinner in the elegant dining room, La Cascade Restaurant. On Saturday guests can explore Kenmare or enjoy some of the estate’s outdoor pursuits such as clay pigeon shooting or golf on one of the nearby courses. The evening begins with a tour of the hotel’s wine cellar and wine tasting which recently scooped the “Wine Experience of The Year” Gold Award at the Hotel & Catering Review Awards 2008 with sommelier, Damien Trinckquel. This will be followed with an early dinner in La Cascade restaurant prior to Julian’s musical performance. On Sunday, attune yourself to the refreshing river-side walks, entwining forest pathways and glistening waterfalls after a sumptuous breakfast.
