ConTempo Quartet will kick of the Christmas season with a beautiful programme of Christmas music. The performance will include Concerto grosso in G minor, Op. 6, No. 8 by Arcangelo Corelli, known commonly as the Christmas Concerto. The work was commissioned by Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni and bears the inscription Fatto per la notte di Natale, which translates as ‘made for the night of Christmas’. The programme will also feature a selection of Romanian Christmas Carols by Hungarian composer Béla Bartók and a string quartet arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Get into the festive season with Galway Music Residency and ConTempo Quartet with an hour of beautiful festive music!
