The Solas Quartet presents another wide-ranging programme culminating in Dvorak’s magnificent A flat quartet. Young Dublin-based violinist and composer Rohan Harron’s Psychotia opens the programme with unpredictable energy and drive. Henry Purcell would have been of a similar age in London in 1680 when he wrote his fifteen remarkable Fantasias. Frank Bridge’s Phantasie Quartet is one of many early 20th century British works which bear the ‘Fantasy’ tag and look back to the form of Purcell’s Fantasias. American composer Jessie Montgomery’s Strum ‘begins with fleeting nostalgia and transforms into ecstatic celebration, drawing on American folk idioms and the spirit of dance and movement’.
