Mozart  String Quartet in C major K.465 Dissonance
Caterina Schembri  Grüner Strahl (Dublin premiere)
Mendelssohn  String Quartet in A minor Op.13

The Lumiere Quartet is a new group led by acclaimed Irish Baroque Orchestra leader Claire Duff, playing with classical bows on gut strings and offering fresh interpretations of Mozart’s Dissonance Quartet and Mendelssohn’s A minor quartet. The transition between Classicism and Romanticism as represented by these iconic works is the inspiration behind Caterina Schembri’s new quartet Grüner Strahl commissioned by the National String Quartet Foundation. This is the name of a rare meteorological phenomenon that sometimes occurs at sunset or sunrise - a green flash above the sun that lasts for a few seconds before disappearing, a fleeting moment of transformation.

Presented by NCH in association with the National String Quartet Foundation
