Osvaldo Gojijov


Ailbhe McDonagh

String Quartet No. 2 ‘’The Lore Quartet’

Dmitri Shostakovich String Quartet in F# minor, Op. 108 No. 7

Johannes Brahms

String Quartet in A minor Op. 51 No. 2

Cellist-composer Ailbhe McDonagh presents her newly commissioned second string quartet on this tour by the Ficino Quartet. Osvaldo Golijov’s hauntingly beautiful Tenebrae reflects both the brutality of human conflict and the parallel perspective of the earth’s serene progress through space. Shostakovich’s short and enigmatic seventh quartet was dedicated to his first wife who had died six years earlier and the concert ends with Brahms’ glorious masterpiece, his A minor quartet Op. 51 No. 2
