Mia Cooper, Katherine Hunka, Ioana Petcu-Colan & Helena Wood - Violins

Monday 24th April @ 8.00pm

Music Network


Four of Ireland's finest violinists - from the country's most prestigious orchestras to boot - come together for the very first time in a scintillating series of concerts. Leader of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra since 2006, Mia Cooper is a highly-regarded chamber musician who has graced the stage with the Barbican Trio, Gould Trio, Brodsky Quartet, Fibonacci Sequence and Academy of St Martin in the Fields; Katherine Hunka, leader of the Irish Chamber Orchestra since 2002, has collaborated with Murray Perriah, Joshua Bell, Nigel Kennedy and Anthony Marwood amongst others; while Ioana Petcu-Colan, Associate Leader of the Ulster Orchestra, has worked with artists as diverse as Martin Hayes, Arcade Fire, John Abercrombie and members of the Alban Berg and Vanbrugh quartets; and Helena Wood, leader of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, a seasoned performer on TV and radio, who has given numerous recitals at venues including Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall and the Royal Festival Hall. A truly stellar line-up performing music that includes Telemann, Bartók and Ian Wilson.
