The Marketplace Theatre - Armagh

Dvořák - String Quartet No. 12 American

Puccini - Crisantemi

Mendelssohn - Octet for strings in E flat

Join players from the Ulster Orchestra in the Market Place Studio theatre for a wonderful evening of music - perfect to dispel the November gloom! Dvořák's American String Quartet is something of a chamber counterpart to his New World Symphony and is a shimmering, delightful work, full of the folk influences that characterise the composer's work. Puccini's Crisantemi is a beautiful elegy, named after the chrysanthemum (in the Italian Tradition, a symbol of mourning and heroism) and written in memory of a friend, while Mendelssohn's Octet for Strings is one of his earliest compositions and full of the sunny optimism and cheerful exuberance of youth. The Octet has remained a favourite of string players and audiences alike and Mendelssohn himself declared it to be 'my favourite of all my compositions'. 

If you've ever wondered what it's like to hear an orchestra live, this charming concert is the perfect introduction, while regular orchestra attenders won't want to miss the opportunity to hear your favourite musicians in a more relaxed and intimate setting!
