In collaboration with the National String Quartet Foundation

The Vanbrugh – Keith Pascoe, Simon Aspell and Christopher Marwood – welcome David McElroy and Ed Creedon for performances of two of the great string quintets: Mozart’s dark and melancholic G minor quintet from 1787, and Dvorak’s sunny, mellifluous ‘American’ Quintet, written in 1891.

As curtain – raiser in three of the concerts, the Foundation presents a remarkable young group from CIT Cork School of Music, the Danu Quartet. They will play Shostakovich’s first string quartet, music of great charm and brilliance, its superb quartet writing a sure portent of the fourteen extraordinary quartets that followed it.
