Following a decent sized article in the Irish Times this weekend the Badke Quartet began their eleven date Music Network tour of Ireland in the Coach House, Dublin Castle this evening. The programme featured three works, the highlight of which was Ian Wilson’s String Quartet No 1 “Winter’s Edge”. A beautiful work, it demonstrates Wilson’s unique voice and his comprehensive understanding of the string family.
This is a little bit of a plug as I work with Music Network but am not involved in the touring or the artists & promoters rosters so I’m not always entirely familiary with the concerts before attending. The Badke performance was of the usual Music Network excellent standard and if you get a chance check out the remaining tour dates here.
