The Belfast Music Society presents its annual festival this weekend. Centred around ‘Folk Inspirations’ in classical chamber music, the concerts bring to the Great Hall of Queen’s University a colourful array of accessible and attractive music.

Tonight at 8pm, Alexander Baillie (cello) and James Lisney (piano) highlight two sonatas by Chopin and Moeran. The Finnish string quartet, Meta4, features Bartok’s Fifth Quartet and Sibelius’s Voces Intimae Quartet tomorrow at 1.30pm and Saturday evening’s concert at 8pm presents Argentinean pianist Nelson Goerner in music by de Falla, Liszt and Chopin. In a change to the Sunday afternoon’s recital at 3pm, tenor Mark Wilde is accompanied by David Owen Norris in a tribute to Peter Pears.

Locally-born flautist Eimear McGeown gives a coffee concert with friends Michael McHale and Jonathan Toman at 11am on Saturday morning in the Harty Room and on Sunday morning at 11am in the Radisson Blu Hotel, local composer Neil Martin “circles the square” in a new work of his own.
