The ConTempo Quartet presents Dave Flynn’s remarkable trad - classical crossover string quartet which won the 2004 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival Composers Prize. The composer writes: This piece is heavily influenced by the traditional music of my native Ireland. There are no traditional Irish melodies in the piece; however throughout the work's four movements there are techniques, modes, rhythms and feelings common to traditional Irish music. The programme opens and closes with popular classics by Haydn and Dvořák.
