“We are saddened to report that the founder and director of Trio Scordatura, Bob Gilmore, passed away last month, and we are unable to offer a concert by the Trio as originally intended and as advertised in our brochure. We would like, instead, to honour his memory with a concert that celebrates his many wonderful achievements in the world of music. The remaining members of the Trio, Elisabeth Smalt and Alfrun Schmid, joined by friends and admirers from around Ireland, will perform a programme of remarkable and beautiful music by many of the composers Bob particularly loved.”
