Malachy Robinson

Malachy Robinson is a dedicated chamber musician, as passionate about Early Music as he is about New Music. He is a founder of the Gregory Walkers, a group performing “Early Music from Ireland and beyond” in which he plays the viola da gamba, and is director of the Robinson Panoramic Quartet, a revelatory alternative to the standard string quartet. Principal double-bass with the Irish Chamber Orchestra since 1995, he is also a founder member of the cutting-edge Crash Ensemble. A founder member too of the Irish Baroque Orchestra, he has appeared with period-instrument orchestras such as The Sixteen, the English Concert, the OAE and the Academy of Ancient Music. He has performed with the Vanbrugh, Callino, Parisii, T’ang, Con Tempo and Vogler String Quartets, the Phoenix Piano Trio, Daghda Dance Company, the Brian Byrne Big Band, and theatrical star Camille O’Sullivan. His quintet Lunfardia led by Argentinean guitarist Ariel Hernandez received four-star reviews from the press for their recordings. The super-eclectic Far Flung Trio (with ICO’s Katherine Hunka and accordionist Dermot Dunne) is about as much fun as three people can have in public.
