The ConTempo Quartet was founded in Bucharest in 1995 and has been based in Ireland since 2003 as Galway Music Residency’s Ensemble in Residence. They have performed nearly 2000 concerts in 46 countries. Rebecca Clarke’s serenely beautiful Poem from 1924 and Jane O’Leary’s 2005 ConTempo Conversations are framed in this programme by two of the quartet greats, Haydn’s witty Joke quartet and Schubert’s epic masterpiece, his posthumously published G major quartet.
