Schubert & Dvořàk

We are so excited to stream our ‘Schubert & Dvořàk’ from University Concert Hall, Limerick under our visionary Violinist, Katherine Hunka!

Programme includes:

Schubert Rondo in A for Violin and Strings, D.438

David Fennessey Hirta Rounds

Dvořàk  Serenade for Strings, Op. 22

Schubert’s Rondo for Violin and Strings is a masterpiece – virtuosic, fresh, lyrical, infused with love and reflects his admiration for Mozart. Unfolding slowly, Katherine Hunka’s playing unfurls and ecstatically sings before a light-hearted rondo finale. The ICO revisit David Fennessy’s ethereal Hirta Rounds which evokes nostalgic memories of Scottish islanders being forced to leave their homes of many centuries.  A barren rock of ruins is the sole reminder of a once vibrant community.  Dvořák’s sunny and genial Serenade for Strings was composed in twelve days and is one of his best loved works.  A rich melody and optimistic mood are at the heart of this life affirming serenade. This ICO showcase is another romp of pure, unadulterated joy!
