The Ficino Ensemble present an exciting programme of Ligeti’s fabulously quirky wind quintet, Berio’s beautiful arrangements of folk songs sung by the renowned mezzo-soprano Norah King, and Brahms’s melodious String Sextet No. 1. The group was formed in 2012 as a string trio, and has since expanded into a flexible chamber music group that performs great music for small ensembles. Members of the Ficino Ensemble are recognized in Ireland and abroad as soloists and chamber musicians. Their concerts have been described as exciting and intimate with a high calibre of ensemble playing. The group’s aim is to perform works that appeal to a discerning audience whilst championing lesser known works that deserve to be appreciated.
