Ortus Chamber Music Festival

The Mall Arts Centre, Youghal

Sat 04 Sep 2021

In a welcome return to Youghal’s delightful waterside venue, the Mall Arts Centre, you will be treated to one of Haydn’s String Quartets, a trip Across the Alps with Irish composer Eoghan Desmond and George Walker’s sensational Lyric for Strings. The second half will open with a String Trio by Sam Perkin and will be brought to a resounding close with Carrado Maria Saglietti’s Suite for French Horn and String Quartet, influenced by tango and jazz music and described as “a cocktail of passion, nostalgia and virtuosity that captures and amuses both the performers and the audience”.
Artistic Director and cellist Sinéad O’Halloran will be joined by Irish musician Hannah Miller, French horn alongside international violinists Peter Rainer & Stephanie Appelhans (Germany), Francesca Gilbert (UK) on viola.
