WEDNESDAY 4 JULY

40 COFFEE CONCERT – ST BRENDAN’S CHURCH

The musicians for this concert have already been changed twice. Unfortunately we are now obliged to change both musicians and programme. The Festival is most grateful for all the generous cooperation and collaboration of all the musicians involved.

Mozart Flute Quartet in D major K.285 will proceed with Fiona Kelly, Liana Gourdjia, Piotr Szumiet and Andreas Brantelid.

The Mozart Divertimento in E flat K563 is however cancelled as, despite finding a replacement viola it proved impossible to readjust schedules to provide sufficient rehearsal time for such an important and complex work.

Instead Quatuor Danel will play Beethoven Quartet No.1 in F major Op.18/1 followed by the Irish premiere of a recently discovered miniature by Mieczyslaw Weinberg Improvisation and Romance for String Quartet.

So the full programme for Event 40 will now be

  • Mozart Flute Quartet in D major K.285 Fiona Kelly, Liana Gourdjia, Piotr Szumiet and Andreas Brantelid.
  • Beethoven Quartet No.1 in F major Op.18/1 Quatuor Danel
  • Mieczyslaw Weinberg Improvisation and Romance for String Quartet. Quatuor Danel
