A great composer but also a great arranger. Beethoven has set these Irish airs with consummate skill, totally embracing the genre and spirit of these lovely songs, just as he has with the Scottish and Welsh Albums (also available here).
He set them originally for piano trio and voices, but now we have our own unique version for viola quartet. What a joy! 25 mins. E/M
You might also like to look at his Scottish and Welsh Albums, also available here.
Or alternatively you can own all three volumes in one if you look for the Complete Set in our shop.
