Opening Recital, Westport Chamber Music Festival
September 13 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm€50
Friday, September 13, 8:00 pm, €50
“Every year it is a wonderful challenge for us to vary the programme for Westport’s by now well-established Festival of Chamber Music. Last year for instance, we introduced an exclusively string quartet concert for the first time. This year we introduce a classic song-cycle from the German repertoire; and in a contemporary American song-cycle on poems by Yeats; we shall have seven musicians collaborating onstage, another first.
We are delighted to welcome you back to the Festival, which continues to change and grow. Our three great venues – Westport House, Westport Town Hall Theatre and Holy Trinity Church – continue to put their own stamp on the music-making. And most importantly, we have a warm and loyal audience that plays a huge part in creating this Festival’s distinctive character. We thank you and we hope that you will greatly enjoy your time here.”
Catherine Leonard & Hugh Tinney, Artistic Directors
We are delighted to welcome Catherine and Hugh as well as the lovely people at Classic Links and the local organising commitee to Westport House.
Yet again, the Friday night programme is an exciting one and is set in the stunning setting of the Long Gallery of Westport House.
It is always a popular event and sells out in advance, so don’t delay. Be sure to pick up your tickets.
