String Quartet in D major Op. 18 no. 3 (Ludwig van Beethoven)

‘Night Pieces’ (Sean Doherty)

String Quartet in A minor Op. 51 no. 2 (Johannes Brahms)

Cork violinist Mairead Hickey leads a star-studded lineup of international musicians. Beethoven’s Op.18 No.3 was by some accounts his first string quartet and from its lyrical opening to its fleet-footed finale it carries the hallmarks of the master’s genius. We lost many of Brahms’ quartets through his obsessive self censorship, but this magnificent A minor quartet is one of the three masterpieces that escaped his fireplace.
