The Callino Quartet was formed at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival in 1999 and went on to enjoy a successful international career, including winning second prize in the 2008 Tromp International String Quartet in the Netherlands.

Their programme opens with the 1787 ‘Frog’ quartet, yet another masterpiece by Josef Haydn, and also includes some of the lovely pieces written for a long running series of Friday night musical gatherings in 1880s St Petersburg. Siobhan Cleary’s Carrowkeel was inspired by the spirituality of a neolithic village near Sligo and the concert ends with Debussy’s magnificent string quartet.
