Four of Cork’s brightest musical stars have come together as the Shandon Quartet and are performing in Limerick, Youghal and the National Concert Hall as part of the National String Quartet Foundation’s autumn season.
Haydn’s 62nd String Quartet,’Emperor’, abounds with charm and vitality, incorporating folk dance rhythms and some stunning virtuosity. Raymond Deane wrote his quartet, Embers, in 1973 when he was only twenty years old and it remains one of his best loved works. Schumann’s third quartet is lyrical, dramatic, full of conflicting emotions and is abundant in beautiful musical references to Clara, his wife.
