They will be joined by Italian concert pianist Chiara Opalio, an international guest artist of the Spotlight Chamber Music Series. Between them, these dynamic musicians have garnered an array of prestigious national and international prizes, having studied at the CIT Cork School of Music, the Hochschule für Musik Basel, the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Northern College of Music, amongst others, as well as having performed in concert halls across the globe. The programme for this recital consists of piano quintets from the classical and romantic eras, as well as a selection of miniatures by John Gibson.


The inaugural Spotlight Chamber Music Series commenced at the Triskel Arts Centre this Autumn, comprising four Saturday lunchtime concerts in September, October, December and January, respectively. Funded by the Arts Council, the series is based on the principle of bringing together some of Ireland’s most distinguished musicians to play with one another in small ensembles. These concerts feature a wide range of repertoire, from Mozart to Stanford, and Schumann to Schnittke.
