Ficino Quartet: Autumn String Quartet Series
The Ficino Quartet features four of our leading musicians and has toured annually for the Foundation since 2018. Here they present another fascinating programme including Philip Glass’s hugely popular ‘Mishima’, drawn from his 1985 soundtrack to Paul Schrader’s film on the life of author, playwright and latter-day Samurai, Yukio Mishima. The concerts also feature a new commission by Cork composer Linda Buckley, and Ravel’s evergreen string quartet from 1903.

Philip Glass – Mishima
