The acclaimed Piatti Quartet is riding high at the moment with accolades for recent recordings and a new appointment as resident quartet at London’s prestigious King’s Place. They return to Ireland with Dvořák’s magnificent G major string quartet, paired with Smetana’s autobiographical quartet ‘From My Life. Dvořák himself performed as violist in the 1878 premiere of this extraordinary quartet which through its four movements truly conveys a sense of the span of a lifetime. Deirdre Gribbin’s ‘Somewhere I have never travelled’ is one of her loveliest creations, full of magical, ethereal textures and it completes this terrific programme.

Presented by the National Concert Hall. Part of a tour supported by the Arts Council and RTE Lyric FM
