Described by The Strad magazine as “a polished and professional group full of exuberance with a fine sense of ensemble,” the RTÉ ConTempo Quartet is one of the most exciting and vibrant chamber ensembles performing today.
Since its formation in Bucharest in 1995, it has performed world-wide in prestigious venues such as St Martin-in-the-Fields, Berliner Philharmonie, Palazzo del Quirinale  Rome, Carnegie Hall and the Opera House Tel-Aviv.

“Petcu Colan’s Rising Star performance was memorable no less for the breadth of technique than for the comparable range of emotion, expression and mood.”
Andrew Johnstone, Irish Times – NCH Rising Star Recital

Recital is followed by a Meet the Artist reception. All welcome.
