Aingeala De Burca (violin)

Michael Joyce (piano)


Aingeala De Burca began her violin career at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, studying with Maeve Broderick for 16 years. In 1993, she was awarded an honours degree in music from Trinity College, Dublin. As a freelance performer, she has demonstrated her quality and diversity by appearing with such groups as the Irish Baroque Orchestra, the Wexford Opera Festival Orchestra, and In Tua Nua. Her skills in improvisation and communication afforded her great success in her career as a music facilitator in educational, community music and healthcare settings.  In 2007 her primary focus returned once more to performance when she began studying the baroque violin with Anne Wallstrom and Maya Homburger and the modern violin with Mariana Sirbu. In 2009, Aingeala was awarded a Masters in Classical String Performance from the University of Limerick. As an important part of her personal performance renaissance, she qualified in 2008 as a teacher of the Interactive Teaching Method (ITM) for the teaching of the F M Alexander Technique.


Michael Joyce began his piano studies at the Cork School of Music with teachers Bridget Doolan and Jan Cap.  Upon completing the two-year teaching diploma at the School, he studied piano performance with Professors Nerine Barrett and Renate Kretschmar-Fischer at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold, Germany, graduating with a first class honours Batchelor's degree.  After completing his studies in Germany, Michael worked as a teaching assistant at Yale University while pursuing a Master of Music degree with the Hungarian pianist Peter Frankl. Michael has performed with singers Pauline Tinsley and Edel O'Brien, violist Nobuko Imai, violinists Héloîse Geoghegan, Keith Pascoe and Catherine Leonard and cellist Pavel Gomziakov.  In 2006 he was artist in residence at the University of Limerick with the Bellatrix Piano Trio, along with Heloise Geoghegan (violin) and Gerald Peregrine (cello). The Trio reached the semi-finals of the Vittorio Gui International Chamber Music Competition, in Florence Italy and performed recitals in Portugal, Spain, Italy and Ireland.
