The Lir Quartet

Haydn String Quartet Op.77 No.1
Schubert String Quartet in E flat major D.87
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 3 in F major Op. 73

Founded for Barry Douglas’ 2017 Clandeboye Festival, the Lir Quartet is one of Ireland’s most exciting chamber groups. Joined for their fourth tour for the Foundation this autumn by violinist Patrick Rafter, they present three great works from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Haydn’s two quartets Op.77, written in 1799, were his last creations in the genre that he shaped and developed for half a century. Schubert’s E flat quartet D.87 was written in 1813 when Schubert was just 17 and, while not on the dramatic scale of his late quartets, is a masterpiece of Viennese charm and elegance. Shostakovich’s third quartet, from 1946, is one of the finest, most evocative works in the repertoire, a heart-rending response to the horror of the second world war.
