ZEMLINSKY String Quartet No.1
DEIRDRE GRIBBIN Merrow Sang
SHOSTAKOVICH String Quartet No 3

Róisín Walters’ Liverpool Quartet brings an exciting and varied programme to Galway. Zemlinsky’s beautiful early masterpiece is very much in the genre of Brahmsian late romanticism. Shostakovich’s third quartet is a heart-breaking musical commentary on the futility and pain of war. Deirdre Gribbin’s magical and mysterious “Merrow Sang” from 2007 vividly recounts a tale of merrow-maidens emerging from the sea during the burial of one the Cantillon family of Ballyheigue.
