Irish Chamber Orchestra

The Irish Chamber Orchestra oozes virtuosity with its team of extraordinary musicians, providing electrifying performances at home and abroad.  Its February offering in Dublin on February 13 features a roller coaster of kaleidoscopic sounds that traverse time.

Beethoven’s final work, his Gross Fuge is the legacy of the master, who having blazed a musical trail knew when to rest his pen and make way for generations to come.  His Gross Fugue speaks so convincingly, transporting the listener to his world and is as fresh today as it was 300 years ago!
