Beethoven sonatas at the Green Barn

This Saturday November 18th Pianist Finghin Collins and Violinist Katherine Hunka, together they will perform a very enjoyable programme of sonatas for violin and piano, from Beethoven’s energetic A minor Sonata to Brahms’ gloriously sunny G major violin sonata, passing by contemporary Irish composer Ian Wilson and the Czech composer Janacek on the way. This event will be performed in the spectacular Green Barn at Burtown House and Gardens, where Finghin played earlier this year to much acclaim.

London born Katherine Hunka is leader of of the Irish Chamber Orchestra and regularly directs from the leader’s chair. She has played concerti and double concerti and given premiere performances with a number of Irish and British orchestras. As a soloist she has performed in the Wigmore Hall, The Royal Albert Hall and The South Bank Centre in London.
