I caught the final recital of a weekend festival dedicated to chamber music by a young ensemble, some of whom are still in their teens. My review appeared in Wednesday's Irish Examiner.
The finale was as Francis Humphreys comprehensive programme note eloquently put it ‘a triumphant blaze of sound’Ortús have made a tús maith. With the support of mentor Adrian Petcu and the imprimatur of board members at West Cork Music Festival and pianist Barry Douglas, the future looks bright, a future these young players have shown willingness and flair in shaping for themselves. We wish them well.
