We’re delighted to welcome the exciting young chamber music ensemble Musici Ireland to the Festival for this pair of concerts in the Black Abbey, starting with chamber and choral works by the great Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, whose unmistakable sound has thrilled audiences all over the world for more than 40 years.

The music of both Arvo Pärt [ ].. is characterised by its directness, the sonic purity of its gestures. Scored for string trio and three solo voices, it offers a musical meditation on faith and humanity. – GRAMAPHONE RECORDS
