ConTempo Quartet in Portumna
Ina Boyle - Quartet in E minor 
Jane O’Leary - Strings in the Air, Songs in the Stones 
Brahms - Quartet in B flat Op.67 
The ConTempo Quartet opens our Autumn 2022 season with two Irish string quartets, Ina Boyle’s lovely E minor Quartet, written in Enniskerry in 1934, and a new piece by Galway’s Jane O’Leary. Brahms’ sunny, uplifting B flat major quartet was written in 1875 while he enjoyed a summer holiday in the beautiful German town of Ziegelhausen and it was to become his favourite of his three published quartets.
The ConTempo Quartet is resident ensemble of the Galway Music Residency
This concert is part of a tour co-ordinated by the National String Quartet Foundation and the Galway Music Residency. It is supported by the Arts Council and by RTE Lyric FM. Further details at www.nsqf.ie
