Donegal Chamber Music Society, Spring Concerts 2012
Donegal Chamber Music Society presents "Sundays in Conwal" with the DONEGAL CAMERATA String Ensemble in Conwal Church, Letterkenny on Sundays 25th of March and 13th of May at 3pm.
The first concert kicks off on Sunday 25th March with a programme in which the ensemble continues exploring Gioachino Rossini´s String Sonatas -- opera-like music originally written for 2 violins,cello and doublebass. These pieces were composed when Rossini was twelve years old and they are masterpieces in their own right. Also included will be the Divertimento in C Major by Carl Stamitz, composer of the Mannheim School, who was a very important figure in the history of classical music. The ensemble is also performing neglected string music by Hermann Spielter and Charles Parry, pursuing the aim of bringing rare string music alive.
A 45 minutes recital by four international professional players with popular prices for a Sunday afternoon chamber music treat in Conwal Church.
