Shostakovich String Quartet No.1
Mozart String Quintet in G minor K516
Dvorak String Quintet in E flat major Op.97 ‘American’
The Vanbrugh – Keith Pascoe, Simon Aspell and Christopher Marwood – join with violinist David McElroy and violist 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 a remarkable young group from CIT Cork School of Music, the Danu Quartet, will play Shostakovich’s first string quartet, music of great charm and brilliance, it’s superb quartet writing a sure portent of the fourteen extraordinary quartets that followed it.
