Cellist-composer Ailbhe McDonagh presents her newly commissioned second string quartet on this tour by the Ficino Quartet. Osvaldo Golijov’s hauntingly beautiful Tenebrae reflects both the brutality of human conflict and the parallel perspective of the earth’s serene progress through space. Shostakovich’s short and enigmatic seventh quartet was dedicated to his first wife who had died six years earlier and the concerts end with Brahms’ glorious masterpiece, his A minor quartet Op.51 No.2
