Fanny Mendelssohn: String Quartet in E flat major
J.S. Bach: Chorale Prelude BWV668
Harry O’Connor: Summer Idyll
Brahms: String Quartet in C minor Op.51 No.1

This year’s NSQF summer tour of Cork and Kerry welcomes back the wonderful Lir Quartet with an exciting and varied programme. Fanny Mendelssohn’s 1834 string quartet remained unpublished until 1988 but is now a core and much-loved work in the quartet repertoire. Harry O’Connor is a graduate of MTU Cork School of Music and is continuing his composition studies at Oxford where the Castalian Quartet premiered his fine ‘Summer Idyll’ earlier this year. Brahms’ C minor quartet is one of the greats, its dramatic and impassioned outer movements contrasting with the sublime beauty and lyricism of the Romanze and the relaxed musings of the third movement.

The Lir Quartet was formed in 2016 at the Clandeboye Festival. In summer 2024 the quartet will work as Fellowship Quartet at the ConCorda chamber music course, followed by this five concert tour around Cork and Kerry and a further national tour in October.

Tickets €15 (plus booking fee €1.50)
