The Large Room,  Wednesday 19th October 2022 at 7:30 pm Mairead Hickey – violin William Hagen – violin Georgy Kovalev – viola Ella van Poucke – cello Cork violinist Mairead Hickey leads a star-studded lineup of international musicians. Beethoven’s Op.18 No.3 was by some accounts his first string quartet and from its lyrical opening to its fleet-footed finale it carries the hallmarks of the master’s genius. We lost many of Brahms’ quartets through his obsessive self censorship, but this magnificent A minor quartet is one of the three masterpieces that escaped his fireplace. Sean Doherty’s fine ‘Night Piece’ was written for Mairead Hickey’s Ortus Festival in Cork in February 2020. Programme: Beethoven – Quartet in D major Op.18 No.3 [1798]  Sean Doherty – ‘Night Piece’ [2020]  Brahms – Quartet in A minor Op.51 No.2 [1873]  Mairead Hickey (violin) & Ella van Poucke (cello) play Johannes Brahms Double Concerto, Op. 102 – Soundwave
