RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet and Niall Vallely (concertina)
The Quartet will team up with composer and concertina player Niall Vallely with Malachy Robinson on double-bass, to perform a number of commissions written by Niall plus some traditional Irish tunes. Pieces include Ó Riada Room and The Red Tree, which was commissioned by RTÉ lyric fm and the Cork Folk Festival and draws on the sounds of Irish, African and European traditions for inspiration. The RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet will also play the beautiful Quartet no 2 in E flat by E J Moeran.
The concert will be recorded for the European Broadcast Union as part of its Folk Music Influences on Classical Music Series 2013.
