Piatti Quartet in Sligo presented by Con Brio

Thursday, 7 March 2024, 7.30pm

Con Brio is delighted to welcome The Piatti Quartet who widely renowned for their ‘profound music making’ (The Strad) and their ‘lyrical warmth’ (BBC Music Magazine).

Since their prizewinning performances at the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, they have performed all over the world and made international broadcasts from many countries. They return for their latest tour for the National String Quartet Foundation with a wide-ranging and entertaining programme. Mendelssohn’s beautiful E flat quartet was his first published quartet and from the first bars draws the listener into a world of dramatic story-telling. Moeran’s second quartet shares the same key but in contrast offers a beguiling world of English and Irish folk song and dance, mixed perhaps with the influence of Debussy. Charlotte Harding’s ‘Iorsa’ evokes the scenic glen on the Isle of Arran, while Dvořák’s famed ‘American’ Quartet draws on both native American and Slavonic folk music, as well as on the composer’s fascination with railways.
