The Vanbrugh, with pianist Michael McHale and double bassist Malachy Robinson, tour Ireland January 25-31, performing works by Brahms and Schubert. Brahms’s turbulent and dramatic Piano Quartet in C minor contrasts with Schubert’s “Trout Quintet”, much-loved by musicians and audiences alike for its elegance, charm and beauty.

Extending the great legacy of the Vanbrugh Quartet – following the retirement of former first violinist Gregory Ellis – the remaining players (Keith Pascoe (violin), Simon Aspell (viola) and Christopher Marwood (cello)) continue as The Vanbrugh. This concert sees them collaborate with one of Ireland’s leading pianists, Michael McHale, alongside Malachy Robinson, bassist with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Irish Baroque Orchestra, and the Crash Ensemble.
