THE ACCLAIMED Callino Quartet, along with British clarinettist Sarah Beaty, will perform work by Haydn and others, in the Church of Ireland Clifden on Wednesday March 21 at 8pm.
The quartet will open the programme with the String Quartet in D Major Op 64 No 5 ‘The Lark’ by Franz Joseph Haydn, the man considered the father of the string quartet.
The Callinos and Sarah Beaty will then perform David Bruce’s ‘Gumboots’, inspired by the gumboot dancing traditions of black miners in South Africa who wore wellingtons for working in flooded gold mines. ‘The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind’ by Argentinean composer Olsvaldo Golijov will also be performed.
The Callino Quartet, formed in 1999, is Ireland’s first indigenous string quartet. They have toured throughout Europe and North America and played numerous festivals.
