  • WelcomeI am delighted to present our 2015/16 season

    dedicated to that most ancient, precious,personal, invisible instrument the humanvoice. Across the season many of Irelands

    and Europe's finest singers will grace our many stages in a huge varietyof contexts, in recital with piano, in performance with orchestra, in anoperatic setting, in a choral setting, with string quartet

    I am also thrilled to announce two new strands to our season the MFGOrchestral Series generously sponsored by Stewart Construction andthe MFG Lunchtime Series generously sponsored by SAP. We will bespoilt these months with visits from four different orchestras withsoloists and choirs. The six lunchtime concerts will take place at theMeyrick Hotel on selected Thursdays throughout the season and willpresent top Irish and international (mostly younger) artists in a relaxedand informal setting.

    The Midwinter Festival, entitled CAPTIVE: Music from the Abyss, will present music written in captivity or inspired by the theme ofincarceration and will include such pieces as Messaiens Quartet for theEnd of Time, famously composed in a Silesian prisoner-of-war camp,music written by composers held in Theresienstadt concentration campand two works for actor and chamber group: the Irish premiere ofAmerican composer Marc Neikrugs tongue-in-cheek Death RowMemoirs of an Extraterrestrial and the world premiere of MichelGalantes C.T.W, inspired by Oscar Wildes Ballad of Reading Gaol,commissioned by Music for Galway.

    There are plenty of other concerts throughout the season to tickle yourfancy; we have sublime Mozart wind serenades with Nicholas Danieland friends, piano trios with the internationally acclaimed Trio di Parma,piano recitals by Philippe Cassard and Steven Osborne, sacred music forGood Friday and we join with the Galway Music Residency to celebratethe ConTempo Quartets 20th Birthday. We hope you will join us formany of these concerts.
