This year’s NSQF summer tour of Cork and Kerry welcomes back the wonderful Lir Quartet with an exciting and varied programme. Fanny Mendelssohn’s 1834 string quartet remained unpublished until 1988 but is now a core and much loved work in the quartet repertoire. Harry O’Connor is a graduate of MTU Cork School of Music and is continuing his composition studies at Oxford where the Castalian Quartet premiered his fine Summer Idyll earlier this year. Brahms’ C minor quartet is one of the greats, its dramatic and impassioned outer movements contrasting with the sublime beauty and lyricism of the Romanze.The Lir QuartetSiobhán Doyle, violinKirsty Main, violinEd Creedon, violaKillian White, celloProgramme Fanny Mendelssohn: String Quartet in E flat majorHarry O'Connor: Summer Idyll Brahms: String Quartet in C minor Op.51 No.1
