The Vanbrugh are joined by pianist Michael McHale and double bassist Malachy Robinson for two of the finest works in the chamber music repertoire. Brahms’ turbulent and dramatic C minor piano quartet tells the tale of Brahms’ love for Clara Schumann in one of the most powerful expressions of musical romanticism. The second part brings complete contrast with Schubert’s “Trout Quintet”, a perennial favourite amongst both musicians and audiences for its elegance, charm and beauty.

The Vanbrugh has emerged from the legacy of the legendary Vanbrugh Quartet. One of Europe’s most successful and distinguished quartets, recognised for beauty of sound, clarity of texture and integrity of interpretation, they had an unusually wide and varied range of repertoire and have an extensive discography.

Belfast-born Michael McHale has established himself as one of Ireland’s leading pianists and has developed a busy international career as a solo recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician. Principal double-bass with the Irish Chamber Orchestra since 1995, Malachy Robinson is also a founder member of the cutting-edge Crash Ensemble as well as appearing with period-instrument orchestras such as The Sixteen, the English Concert, the OAE and the Academy of Ancient Music.
