Enjoy an afternoon concert with the Lir Quartet in Bantry
The Lir Quartet comprises four of Ireland’s finest young musicians who all performed at the inaugural Ortús Chamber Music Festival in 2016. Based between France, Germany and Ireland, its members enjoy busy careers as soloists, chamber musicians and orchestral players.
All four members have previously been prize winners at the Clandeboye Festival Young Musicians’ Platform and this year were invited back to the festival to perform quartets by Ravel, Debussy and Faure. Each passionate about chamber music, they have had regular appearances at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival and all recently performed at the National Concert Hall ‘Chamber Music Gathering’ series.
