Rory Boyle ?String Quartet No 2 (Quartetto da Requiem)WORLD PREMIERE

Dvo??k?String Quartet op 105 in A flat

The concert opens with one of Haydn?s early works in the medium from 1772. He became known as ?the father of the string quartet? and this, one of his Sun Quartets, points to his flowering genius. This is followed by a brand new work receiving its world premiere from a wonderful composer based in Ayrshire, Rory Boyle. The recital culminates in a performance of Dvo??k?s last string quartet from 1896. This had gestated while he was in America and brings something of that New World magic to his chamber music.
