Cork violinist Mairead Hickey will lead a star-studded line-up of international musicians.

Beethoven’s Op.18 No.3 which was by some accounts, his first string quartet and from its lyrical opening to its fleet-footed finale it carries the hallmarks of the master’s genius. We lost many of Brahms’ quartets through his obsessive self-censorship, but the magnificent ‘a minor’ quartet is one of the three masterpieces that escaped his fireplace. Sean Doherty’s fine ‘Night Piece’ was written for Mairead Hickey’s Ortus Festival in Cork in February 2020.
