Need a great Irish flute tune

Hello Everyone,

I am a fan of Irish music (https://erickeller.es/), even though I live in Spain. I am learning to compose music. My latest entry has been this: https://erickeller.es/index.php/compose/70-2019-11-17-compose-do-you-remember.

Now I am looking for another great tune that could be worked into a larger composition. It should sound typically Irish and should be musically interesting, even challenging. I am particularly interested in a tune with a strong and potentially challenging flute track.

Would anyone have a particular suggestion? I would be happy to give ample credits for all suggestions and leads.

With my best wishes, Eric Keller

What is your favourite violin concerto?

Happy new year everyone! 

Did you know, on this day, the German composer Johannes Brahms premiered his Violin Concerto in D major with Hungarian violinist, Joseph Joachim in 1897? This concerto which has been claimed by Polish violinist, Henryk Wieniawski as an "unplayable" work while Spanish violinist, Pablo Sarasate refused to play the work. Now it is one of the greatest violin concertos ever written and it is very famous today.

Here is a link to my favourite recording of this concerto played by Itzhak Perlman:
