Marmen Quartet in Cork

Marmen Quartet in Cork

Saturday, 26 November 2022, 1.00pm

Bartok - Quartet No.4 in C major [1928]
Ian Wilson - ‘Rossiniana’ [2018]
Beethoven - Quartet Op.59 No.2 ‘Rasoumovsky’ [1808]

Cork cellist Sinead O’Halloran joined the Marmen Quartet in June of 2021 at a time when the quartet’s international star continues to rise, with a busy schedule including concerts at the Berlin Philharmonic, the BBC Proms and the Lucerne Festival. Their programme for this tour opens with one of Bartok’s greatest and most riveting masterpieces, its tightly symmetrical structure centred on a deeply atmospheric central movement. Ian Wilson’s slick and entertaining collage of famous Rossini themes is followed by Beethoven’s towering second Rasoumovsky quartet with, at its heart, a rapturous slow movement inspired by contemplation of the starry firmament.

This concert is supported by Cork City Council. It is part of a tour coordinated by the National String Quartet Foundation, supported by the Arts Council and RTE Lyric FM. Further details at www.NSQF.ie
