Lunchtimes with ConTempo 2016/17 season is announced
The Galway Music Residency is delighted to announce its new season of Lunchtimes with ConTempo. Starting on 6th September, the season will continue in its new home, St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church, Market Street on the first Tuesday of every month (except January 2017) at 1:10pm.
These lunchtime concerts, performed by Galway’s own ConTempo Quartet, will focus on the final ten quartets of Joseph Haydn. From Op. 76, his last complete set of String Quartets and arguably most ambitious chamber music, to no. 68 Op. 103, his final unfinished String Quartet, this season will embrace the mature Haydn and celebrate his later works.
