Vanbrugh Quartet #1 at Triskel Arts Centre - Beethoven Online
The Vanbrugh Quartet was based in Cork from 1986 to 2017 and gave close to three thousand concerts worldwide as well as releasing more than thirty CDs of repertoire ranging from the complete Beethoven quartets to many contemporary Irish works. Members of the Vanbrugh Quartet come together once more to take part in this unique celebration of Beethoven’s music. They will present the charming and witty G major quartet Op.18 No.2, written in 1800, and the glorious E flat quartet Op.74 from 1809, the same year as the ‘Emperor’ piano concerto and a year which saw Vienna bombarded and occupied by Napoleon.
