Formed in Bucharest in 1995, Galways Ensemble in Residence since 2003 and RTEs Resident Quartet since 2013, the multiple award-winning ConTempo Quartet is Irelands longest established string quartet. They combine performance of the classical quartet repertoire with a strong commitment to Irelands composers. Haydns glorious, uplifting Sunrise Quartet is contrasted in this programme with Cork composer Linda Buckleys moving tribute to the great Hungarian composer Bela Bartok. The ConTempo are joined by former members of the Vanbrugh Quartet, Simon Aspell and Christopher Marwood, for Brahms magical G major sextet.
The event is made possible with the support of the Arts Council and Cork County Council.
