Mozart, Brahms and Bates in Kilmore Quay

On Sunday 13th May at 4pm Music for Wexford will present a recital in St. Peter’s Church, Kilmore Quay by Musici Ireland. The programme will comprise the clarinet quintets by Mozart and Brahms and Vivo by local composer, Liam Bates. The participating members of this Musici Ireland ensemble will be Mia Cooper and Siun Milne, violin, Beth McNinch, viola, Katie Tertell, cello and Conor Shiel, clarinet.

Mozart loved the range and tone of the clarinet and was probably the first composer to give it prominence. This work, known as the Stadler quintet became one of Mozart’s most popular chamber pieces. The Brahms Clarinet Quintet is thought to be one of the gems of the chamber music repertoire. The energy behind Vivo by Liam Bates springs directly from its syncopated rhythmic patterns and sequences which are influenced by 70s and 80s jazz/funk and funk/disco as well as the music of Stevie Wonder and groups such as Earth, Wind and Fire.

Musici Ireland ensemble is based in Wexford where it is managed by artistic director and violist, Beth McNinch. Since it was established in 2012 the ensemble has built up a reputation for excellence in performance and for presenting exciting programmes. They began 2018 with a new collaboration with the National Concert Hall and National Gallery to mark the opening of the Turner exhibition. In 2017 they performed a lunchtime series in the NCH.
