Formed in Bucharest in 1995, Galway’s Ensemble in Residence since 2003 and RTÉ’s Resident Quartet from 2013 until 2019, the multiple award-winning ConTempo Quartet is Ireland’s longest established string quartet. Turner was one of Debussy’s favourite painters, and the sense of motion and activity in Turner’s skies and seas finds its way into this stunning, sensual quartet from 1893. Cork pianist Ellen Jansson joins the quartet for Brahms’ magnificent piano quintet, published in 1865.

The National String Quartet Foundation is a legacy of the work of the Vanbrugh Quartet. Resident Quartet to RTÉ from 1986 to 2013 and Artists in Residence at University College, Cork from 1990 until the retirement of violinist Gregory Ellis in 2017, the Vanbrugh Quartet gave nearly 2,000 concerts throughout Ireland as well as enjoying a successful international career.

The Foundation creates and sponsors projects which bring live chamber music to audiences throughout Ireland. It is committed to supporting musicians who wish to explore and perform the string quartet repertoire and to helping concert promoters present this rich and rewarding music.
