Described by The Strad Magazine as ‘hugely impressive, he plays with seemingly effortless control’, Irish violinist Darragh Morgan is a renowned exponent of contemporary music, He has appeared as a soloist at Aldeburgh Festival and BBC Proms. A passionate chamber musician, Darragh is founder member of ‘the virtuosic Fidelio Trio’ (Sunday Times). Darragh was for several years violinist with the award-winning Smith Quartet, praised by The Guardian as ‘Britain’s answer to the Kronos’. He regularly leads London Sinfonietta, including recently at The Esplanade Singapore and Venice Biennale. He has recorded over 50 chamber music and solo albums.
Darragh plays an 1848 Giuseppe Rocca violin, generously on loan from the Morgan-Rocca Instrument Trust which is administered by The Royal Society of Musicians, and a bow by Joseph Alfred Lamy.
The programme that Darragh Morgan has chosen for us provides a rich variety of styles and often requires virtuosic technique. The foundation of the programme is the pair of Fantasias composed by the late Baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann. Telemann wrote 12 Fantasias for Solo Violin without Bass (1735), and they are masterpieces in their genre
The programme will also include a performance of a winning work in the Berwick New Music International Composition Competition.
