2009 Vogler Spring Festival


Sligo celebrates the 10th Vogler Spring Festival with another gathering of outstanding Irish and International performers. Having secured a place as one of Ireland’s most distinguished classical music festivals, the festival at St Columba’s Church Drumcliffe will once again play host to many of the world’s great musicians and composers.

The Vogler Spring Festival 2009 again revolves around the Vogler Quartet both as artistic directors and key performers. For classical aficionados there is the chance to hear some of the emerging talents of Ireland perform alongside long established names on the International chamber music scene. At the invitation of the Quartet the festival will feature performances by acclaimed musicians many of them being introduced to Irish audiences for the first time.

Over the four-day May Bank Holiday Weekend audiences will be spoilt for choice at nine concerts and three hundred years of music featuring key ensemble works such as the Reger Clarinet Quintet, Dvorák Quintet, Brahms Piano Trio, Fauré Piano Quartet, Mendelssohn String Quintet, Brahms Sextet and the Schumann Piano Quintet. So join us in Sligo as we celebrate ten years at this international gathering of much-loved masterpieces and world class performances, regarded by many as an indispensable element of Ireland’s musical calendar.
