For a real classical treat, look no further than the Vanbrugh Quartet, with an appropriately autumnal programme titled Harvest at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Wednesday, October 21 at 8pm.
Comprising Gregory Ellis (violin ), Keith Pascoe (violin ), Simon Aspell (viola ) and Christopher Marwood (cello ), the Vanbrugh Quartet is one of Europe’s most successful quartets, internationally recognised for its beauty of sound, clarity of texture and integrity of interpretation within an unusually wide and varied range of repertoire. In 1986 it became RTÉ’s resident string quartet and won the London International String Quartet Competition in 1988. Familiar visitors to all the main UK festivals, the Vanbrugh Quartet also broadcasts frequently for BBC Radio 3 and performs regularly at London’s Wigmore Hall and South Bank. The Quartet enjoys a thriving international career, performing at top venues throughout Europe and the USA, as well as boasting an impressive catalogue of exemplary recordings.
