Cork cellist Sinead O’Halloran’s remarkable Marmen Quartet returns for a second tour for the Foundation. Their performances of Haydn’s quartets are becoming legendary and they start with his D major quartet Op.33 No.6. At the heart of the concerts lie the first performances of a new quartet by acclaimed Dublin-born composer Garth Knox and they conclude with Janáček’s famously vivid and impassioned story of spiritual love.
