RTÉ Contempo Quartet with Dave Kerr @ New Music Dublin

Sunday, 4 March 2018, 3.00pm

Spend Sunday afternoon in the company of the RTÉ Contempo Quartet, one of the most exciting and vibrant chamber ensembles performing today. The concert will include impressive works from award-winning composer/guitarist Dave Flynn, composer, performer and visual artist Jennifer Walshe and DJ Dave Kerr’s new live project ‘From There To Hear’ amongst others.

“Full of telling detail…this was a performance undertaken out of love for the music” (Irish Times, 2016)

“I find a real immediacy in the bright, exaggerated extroversion of the ConTempo Quartet’s music making which is as unusual and as refreshing as it is pleasurable” (Culture, N Ireland)

The Contempo Quartet members studied together in Bucharest, formed a quartet in 1995 and were appointed as Galway Music Residency’s Quartet in Residence in 2003 and RTÉ’s Quartet in Residence in May 2014. At the heart of every performance is the desire to communicate to its audience both the love of, and delight in the music, and the Quartet has gained many new fans with its fresh and enthusiastic approach to a wide variety of repertoire.
