This series of concerts features the Galway ConTempo Quartet with emerging and established composers from Ireland, exploring new music, how it comes to be and how to listen to it. Presented in an intimate setting, these events break down the barriers too often associated with new music, and offers opportunities to understand and appreciate today’s music.
The second concert of Music & Musings on Thursday 14th November will feature celebrated Irish composer Marian Ingoldsby with her work Struck by a raindrop, first premiered in 1999 by the Jupiter String Quartet. Her piece will be complemented by additional works played by the Quartet, with excerpts from Britten’s String Quartet no. 3. Both performances will be punctuated by discussion between composers, artists and listeners who are more than welcome to interact with questions about the music with the evening being chaired by John Caulfield of NUI Galway.
Tickets for these unique events cost €10/€5 and can be purchased at www.eventbrite.ie or at the door subject to availability.
