For many years now, the Festival has proudly introduced exceptional musicians to Ireland. Major international ensembles who have made their Irish début with DICMF in recent seasons include the Ébène, Pavel Haas, Belcea, Doric and Modigliani string quartets. In 2024, we mark another Irish first with the captivating and award-winning Leonkoro Quartet described by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung as an ensemble that “possesses an extraordinary stage presence, glows for the music, embraces full artistic risk, and astounds through their profound sensitivity towards the unique sonority of each piece”. 

Founded in 2019 in Berlin, in 2022 the Quartet garnered a series of prestigious accolades – including First Prize at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, solidifying their place among the most celebrated ensembles of their generation. Since then the Leonkoro Quartet’s career rise has been nothing short of meteoric with sensational débuts and critically- acclaimed performances in prestigious venues including the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, London’s Wigmore Hall and the Konzerthaus Wien.

An enticing programme in the verdant setting of the National Botanic Gardens by this young quartet currently taking the musical world by storm. 

Presented in partnership with the Office of Public Works 
and in association with the National Botanic Gardens
