23 June – 2 July 2023

Ireland’s biggest and most prestigious chamber music festival is back in style for its 26th incarnation with six concerts a day and a multitude of masterclasses. Headlined by four outstanding violinists, Alina Ibragimova, Viviane Hagner, Nurit Stark and young Mairéad Hickey, they are complemented by four international string quartets, Pacifica, Armida, Ardeo and Ragazze plus the exciting young Trio Gaspard. The Baroque and early music ensembles also feature two outstanding violinists, Ariadne Daskalakis and Johannes Pramsohler.
