The picturesque National Botanic Gardens provide the magical backdrop for a by a highly-anticipated return to DICMF by magnetic French Quatuor Ébène. Since making its outstanding Irish début at the 2009 Festival, this charismatic and musically daring ensemble has gone on to cement its place in the first league of string quartets, appearing at prestigious venues and festivals across the globe and garnering multiple awards for its extraordinary recordings.

Their powerful, persuasive performances, consistently described as edge-of-the-seat concert experiences, together with their fresh approach to tradition and open engagement with new forms, have resulted in reaching a wide audience of young listeners worldwide. Music by Maurice Ravel, Robert Schumann and the Swiss composer, Richard Dubugnon, performed by these inspiring musicians guarantee a rousing and exhilarating conclusion to the 2023 Festival.

About the organiser

The Dublin International Chamber Music Festival (formerly Great Music in Irish Houses) is Ireland’s longest-established chamber music festival and was founded in Castletown House in 1970. Since then, the month of June has been a musical summer must for Irish chamber music devotees. Our objective was and still is, to present concerts of chamber music, “the music of friends” in the sort of smaller, intimate spaces for which the music was originally written, away from the more formal setting of a concert hall. Over the years we have offered Irish audiences the opportunity to hear some of the finest international and Irish artists perform a vast range of chamber music in a variety of Ireland’s most historic and notable buildings, spaces that would not normally resound with beautiful and exciting music. Stately Irish Houses are juxtaposed with some of the country’s iconic, modern buildings showing the diversity of Irish architectural and interior design. From that small sapling planted in Castletown House, the great oak that is now the current Festival has grown and is recognised widely as a prestigious platform for world-class musicians.

DICMF is a non-profit making organisation and depends on the support of sponsors and Friends to continue its work into the future. It is funded by The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
