Celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, Music for Galway’s Midwinter Festival continues its long-standing tradition of presenting a three-day weekend of themed concerts with musicians from Galway, Ireland and beyond. The festival will focus primarily on Beethoven’s early solo piano and chamber music compositions, featuring violin sonatas, string quartets, the quintet for piano and winds and the ever-popular septet.
Galway’s own ConTempo Quartet in partnership with Galway Music Residency will open proceedings on Friday night, joined by a stellar cast of colleagues from near and far.
The programme will include:
String Quartet Op. 18 No. 5 (1798-1800)
String Quartet Op. 18 No. 6 (1798-1800)
Septet Op. 20 (1799-1800)
