Strings Attached

The Irish Chamber Orchestra presents ‘Strings Attached’ on Saturday 25 April at 19:30 at the Printworks, Dublin Castle as part of their 2020 national tour.

Concert Programme:
- Schnittke, Moz-Art à la Haydn
- Schubert, Rondo for Violin and String Orchestra, D. 438
- Ian Wilson, Seventh Seal Concerto for cello, double bass and string orchestra World Premiere (Commissioned by the ICO and funded by the Arts Council of Ireland)
- Piazzolla, The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires

Schnittke’s Moz-Art à la Haydn brims with virtuosity, wit and flair. Schubert’s Rondo for Violin and Strings is a masterpiece – virtuosic, fresh, lyrical and imbued with love. Principals Christian Elliott and Malachy Robinson and their ICO colleagues then present the world premiere of Ian Wilson’s Seventh Seal – a new concerto for cello and double bass, commissioned by the ICO. Astor Piazzolla’s ‘tangoed’ Four Seasons of Buenos Aires depicts the seasonal moods of the city through jazzy rhythms and romantic violin solos that ooze excitement, propelling this work to a brilliant conclusion.

This event is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and The Office of Public Works.
