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.
French pianist Cédric Tiberghien, no stranger to Galway audiences, takes centre-stage on Saturday night with an eclectic programme of variations for solo piano. He will also be joined by four extraordinary wind players Aisling Casey, oboe, John Finucane, clarinet, Amy Harman, bassoon and Hervé Joulain horn.
The programme will include:
12 Variations on “Minuet à la Vigano” by Haibel WoO 68 (1795)
Quintet with winds Op. 16 (1796)
Variations in F major Op. 34 (1802)
Eroica Variations Op. 35 (1802)
Tickets €12.50 to €25
