Aloys Fleischmann - the works

Fleischmann the works


The varied achievements of Aloys Fleischmann’s multi-faceted career – as teacher, scholar, conductor and organizer – have had a profound and lasting influence on Irish musical life. As a composer, he strove to bring a modern school of Irishcomposition into being, and arguably his most enduring legacy is his corpus of original compositions. Many of these scores evince a refinement of craftsmanship and imaginative distinction that place them amongst the finest achievements of the period, and earn him an honoured place in the history of the arts in Ireland.
