From Europe with Love: Romania

A Port of Galway Series


Date: 01 December 2020 at 1.00pm


Galway Music Residency’s From Europe with Love is back with its final instalment of 2020 on Tuesday 1 December at 1pm. This special edition of the series sees ConTempo Quartet celebrate their native Romania on Great Union Day. This national holiday in Romania marks the unification of Transylvania, Bessarabia and Bukovina with the Romanian Kingdom in 1918.

ConTempo Quartet will perform a varied programme, showcasing the very best of Romanian music from works by celebrated composers George Enescu and Theodor Grigoriu, to lesser known musical gems. With a strong traditional folk theme throughout, the concert will be a toe-tapping lunchtime treat!

Galway Music Residency is honoured that this event will be introduced by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Romania to Ireland, Mrs. Manuela Breazu. Though a live audience is not possible, the lunchtime concert will be broadcast from the beautiful Oughterard Courthouse and will be available to watch for FREE on Facebook and YouTube.
