Fidelio Trio Brings Musical Excellence to Castlewellan

DOWN Arts Centre and Moving on Music present a relaxing and inspiring afternoon of classical music at its finest with Fidelio Trio at 3pm on Sunday 27th March at The Lodge Cultural Centre, Castlewellan. Fidelio Trio brings together the virtuoso talents of Belfast-born violinist Darragh Morgan, Cork-born pianist Mary Dullea and cellist Robin Michael. Closely associated with many leading composers, Fidelio Trio regularly perform a diverse repertoire throughout Europe, Asia and South Africa. The trio’s members are skilled interpreters of new music, but are equally at home with classical and romantic repertoire, gaining critical acclaim for their performances of Schumann and Ravel in particular.

The trio’s 2011 season will include tours of Northern Ireland, Scotland, South Africa and a début tour of USA, in addition to plans to releases two CDs. For this performance at The Lodge Cultural Centre, Fidelio Trio will perform works by Grainger, Korngold and Ravel.
