Music for Galway Midwinter Festival STANFORD
Galway City, Co. Galway
21 January - 23 January 2022
Through talks, films and music, MfG focuses on an unsung hero of music history, Irish composer Sir Charles Villiers Stanford. Next to chamber and vocal works by Stanford, hear music by composers who influenced him, and by those who studied with him.

For its 2022 Midwinter Festival, Music for Galway shines a light on 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.
