Music for Galway's CELLISSIMO season continues with a concert combining the beauty of violin, piano and cello. Katherine Hunka (leader/director Irish Chamber Orchestra), top British cellist Guy Johnston and on of Ireland’s most distinguished pianists Hugh Tinney come together to present this unique concert on Tuesday 11 November at the Aula Maxima, The Quadrangle, NUI Galway at 8pm.

The programme features the cello in partnership with violin in Reinhold Glière's less well-known but much loved Duos for Violin and Cello. Then, the instrument is teamed with both violin and piano for the performance of Schubert's Piano Trio No. 2, a work that continues to inspire many artists today and has been used by film makers like Stanley Kubrick, Michael Haneke and Tony Scott. Hunka and Tinney will also perform one of César Franck’s greatest chamber music works, his Sonata for Violin and Piano.

The concert is part of a Classicallinks tour that has been funded by the Arts Council of Ireland’s Touring and Dissemination of Work.
