This event has ended

National Botanic Gardens, Sunday 15th September

ConTempo Quartet are coming back to the Botanic Gardens, following a stunning performance earlier this summer, for this fully-seated indoor concert.

This supremely talented quartet came together in 1995 in Bucharest and quickly established themselves on the world stage winning many international prizes and being awarded many accolades in recognition of excellence. They hit Ireland by storm, becoming Galway's music artists in residence in 2003 and RTÉ quartet in residence in 2014. The group have performed at some of the world's most prestigious venues, in Dublin we are privileged to hear the ConTempo Quartet perform at the National Concert Hall regularly. Besides that, they tour the country and perform at Festivals, equally at home with music from the Baroque to the Classical period and adept at performing Contemporary Composition, their repertoire is vast.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) String quartet in A minor.
Fanny Mendelssohn (1805-1847) String quartet in Eb major.

Best known for their YouTube videos (100 million online hits), their live show is what they're most proud of. They've sold out every show in Dublin since 2011 and this show is not to be missed.
