Serafino Quartet’s Irish début

MUSIC FOR Galway’s 33rd season comes to a close with the Irish début concert by the Serafino Quartet, on Wednesday May 7 at 8pm.

The concert takes place in the Mick Lally Theatre, Druid Lane, and the quartet will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet in C major Op 59 no 3, also known as the ‘Razumovsky’, after the then Russian ambassador to Vienna; Schubert’s Quartettsatz in C minor, D703; Frank Bridge’s ‘Three Idylls’; and Grieg’s ‘String Quartet Op 27’, which the composer said “aims at breadth, to soar, and, above all, at vigorous sound for the instruments for which it is written.”

The quartet are Venezuelan violinist Giovanni Guzzo, who plays an Antonio Stradivarius violin dated 1709; German violinist Mirijam Contzen; American viola player Blythe Te Engstroem; and multi-award winning Hungarian cellist István Várdai.

Tickets are €20/16/6 from Music for Galway (091 - 705962, [email protected] ); Opus II, High Street; or www.tht.ie
