Solas Quartet

Friday 11th November 8pm

The Solas Quartet first performed as the 2020 Quartet in online concerts during that autumn’s lockdown. Now we welcome them in real life splendor, led by Irish Chamber Orchestra leader Katherine Hunka, in a fascinatingly varied programme spanning six centuries and reflecting the wide-ranging musical talents and specialities of the quartet’s members. For the second half of the concert they are joined by Cork violist Ed Creedon for Mendelssohn’s brilliant B flat string quintet.
