In 2018, the ConTempo Quartet will perform a complete Beethoven Cycle in venues Nationwide. Ten Irish works complement each of the nine programmes, with works dating from 1934 to the present day, including three new RTÉ commissions, and Ina Boyle's String quartet in E minor.
'The RTÉ ConTempo Quartet is one of the most exciting and vibrant chamber ensembles performing today. The members studied together in Bucharest, formed a quartet in 1995 and were appointed as Galway Music Residency’s Quartet in Residence in 2003 and RTÉ’s Quartet in Residence in May 2014'.
