French Artists @ Great Music in Irish Houses

Great Music in Irish Houses, Ireland’s longest-established chamber music festival, presents once again a world class French programme in association with the French Embassy.

The French programme features the Irish debut for the Modigliani Quartet described as “one of today’s best quartets in the world”, and rising star ensemble Van Kuijk Quartet. The Festival will also highlight a number of important works by French composers including the string quartets of Debussy and Ravel and the Irish premiere of Edith Canat de Chizy’s 2017 work for string quartet - En noir et or.
