Vanbrugh Quartet in Concert
Three of the best loved classical quartets by Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert are complemented in this programme by a new work by Ireland’s most prolific composer for string quartet. The D major quartet by Haydn is famous for a sublime slow movement and scampering finale. Ian Wilson’s ‘Linte’ dedicated to first violinist Gregory Ellis will receive its world premiere. The ‘Serioso’ F minor quartet shows Beethoven at his most terse, packing huge emotion and energy into a remarkably short quartet. Schubert’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ quartet is an epic work of great beauty and grandeur. The extraordinary tarantella chase in the last movement leaves players and audience equally breathless.
