Event description

Description

The Galway Music Residency is delighted to announce its new series in association with the Contemporary Music Centre – Music & Musings. This series of short concerts featuring the Galway ConTempo Quartet, emerging and established composers from Ireland and guest artists, begins on Friday 20 October at 8.30pm in the Black Gate Cultural Centre. The series will present high quality chamber music in an intimate setting, along with opportunities to eat, drink and meet the artists and composers.

The series begins this Friday at 8.30pm in the Black Gate Cultural Centre with an exploration of Kevin Volans’ well known work 'White Man Sleeps'. Written in 1982, it was the first of his compositions to reach a wide audience performed by the Kronos Quartet, who subsequently shot to international fame. ConTempo will perform this extraordinary piece alongside a selection of Bela Bartók’s works in his unique ‘Night Music’ style. The performances will be interspersed with conversations from a select panel, chaired by the Contemporary Music Centre.
