Mozart - Quartet in F major K.590
Ian Wilson - ‘Across a Clear Blue Sky’
Korngold - Quartet No.1 (Irish premiere performances)
Ian Wilson’s ‘Across a clear blue sky’ (after Seamus Heaney’s poem ‘Horace and the Thunder’), was written in response to the attacks on New York’s World Trade Centre on 11th September 2001. The Esposito Quartet opens this autumn season with performances of the work marking the twentieth anniversary of that atrocity. The programme opens with Mozart’s great F major quartet from 1790, famously written for the cellist King of Prussia and concludes with Korngold’s first quartet, completed in Vienna in 1923 and being heard in Ireland now for the first time. This beautiful quartet lives in the fairytale sound world of late romanticism (Schoenberg’s Verklarte Nacht is recalled, especially in the slow movement) and also clearly holds the seeds which led to Korngold’s later fame as a film composer.
