Poetic Music from the Old World.
Presenting Poetic Music from the Old World, Prism Ensemble will bring together some lesser known pieces by Mahler and Beethoven, alongside movements from the Dumky Trio by Dvorak.
The Mahler Piano Quartet is a work in one movement, which was long lost and is the only surviving piece of chamber music by Mahler. The Dumky Trio by Dvorak is a famous work, loved by audiences and performers, and the Beethoven Piano Quartet is a beautiful piece, which is better known in its version for Wind and Piano Quintet — both original works by this great composer.
Performers include Siún Milne, violin, Cian Ó Dúill, viola, Aoife Nic Athlaoich, cello, Gabriela Mayer, piano (CIT Cork School of Music).
