Vyvienne Long releases new recording with Irish Chamber Orchestra

Cellist, singer, and composer Vyvienne Long has joined forces with the Irish Chamber Orchestra for her latest single release. Ten Years from Now is written and arranged by Long, and performed with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, directed by Katherine Hunka. It was recorded at the ICO Studio on campus at the University of Limerick.
This recording is a recreation of Ten Years From Now from Vyvienne’s 2019 album. With the Irish Chamber Orchestra this interpretation of the song is beautifully disarming, intensely personal, and just captures the heart.
Passionate about cross cultural collaborations, Irish Chamber Orchestra was committed to inspiring individuals and connecting communities during lockdown. ICO collaborated with Vyvienne on a short film for Ten Years from Now which resulted in an ethereal and emotive video directed by Shane Serrano. The film music was recorded by Paul Ashe Browne, mixed, and mastered by Ciaran Byrne, with Cinematography by Shane Serrano, Sean Doupe and VFX by Philip Shanahan.
It was produced by Crude Media and Irish Chamber Orchestra and featured at a recent ICO Originals Showcase at The Hunt Museum.
Vyvienne Long has played a host of venues to audiences of up to 10,000 including the Olympia Paris, Radio City New York, Glastonbury, Coachella, and Wembley Arena. Critics have compared her combination of subtle demeanour and heavyweight musical power with Björk, Tori Amos and Joanna Newsom. Her star quality is easy to see. She’s an insightful, witty songwriter, accomplished cellist, pianist, and singer whose music continues to inspire those who discover it. Vyvienne said “collaborating with ICO was a true realisation of my music and as such, a dream come true. The orchestra played the arrangements with an intimacy and vibrancy and the recordings we made just fly.”
ICO CEO, Gerard Keenan added “I would like to thank Vyvienne for her time and for reinventing Ten Years from Now with Irish Chamber Orchestra. We are very appreciative of all the creatives who worked with us in extraordinary circumstances and enabled us to forge many new relationships with an extensive cohort of artists and artforms”.
The new single Ten Years from Now is available for purchase on Bandcamp and streaming across all digital platforms
