For its 2022 Midwinter Festival, Music for Galway shines a light on a largely unsung hero of music history, the Irish composer Sir Charles Villiers Stanford. While many music-lovers might have a passing acquaintance with some of his choral music, the scope and breadth of his extensive musical output is worthy of far greater recognition. The influence and legacy of Stanford as one of the 20th century’s most important composition teachers is hard to overstate.
Throughout the weekend, alongside chamber and vocal works by Stanford himself, we hear music by composers who influenced him, and also by many of the composers who studied with him in London.
The Midwinter Festival is sponsored by MJ Conroy and NUI Galway
