The second concert of the Spotlight Chamber Music Series will open with Dvořák’s Terzetto for two violins and viola. Written over a period of one week in 1887, this work in four movements is a textbook example of Hausmusik, i.e., music originally intended not for the concert hall or recital but for friends to play for their own entertainment. Sam Perkin’s Moto perpetuo will follow, and the programme will conclude with Mozart’s sublime Clarinet Quintet, one of his most popular chamber music compositions. Originally intended for the basset clarinet, an instrument which became obsolete soon after the Quintet was written, the work is more commonly performed on the modern clarinet.

Katherine Hunka, Keith Pascoe (Violin)
Cian Ó Dúill (Viola)
Aoife Nic Athlaoich (Cello)
John Forde (Clarinet)

Programme:
Dvořák – Terzetto, Op. 74
Sam Perkin – Moto Perpetuo for String Quartet
Mozart – Clarinet Quintet, K.581

Spotlight Chamber Music Series

Following the success of its inaugural season last year, the Spotlight Chamber Music Series returns to Triskel Arts Centre this Autumn/Winter, comprised of four Saturday lunchtime concerts in September, October, January and February.

Funded by the Arts Council and supported by Triskel, 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 showcase a wide range of repertoire and a variety of instrumental formations. The featured composer of the Spotlight Chamber Music Series 2018 is Cork native Sam Perkin, whose works will be performed in all four concerts, the first of which will see the world première of his String Trio “Flow”.
