Announcing 2015/2016 Season - Autumn Concerts
Waterford-Music are busy preparing for another series of inspiring and beguiling evenings of classical music recitals in our medieval port city. Join us as a host of superb artists from across Europe grace our gracious Georgian assembly room. There is a French accent to the first half of our season. Philippe Cassard, the very first winner of the Dublin International Piano Competition promises to release magical sonorities from the house Steinway. He is followed by the ladies of the brilliant Quatour Zaïde, our October date whose daring and élan has garnered them many prizes at international competitions since their formation a mere five years ago. The distinguished Austrian cellist, Florian Kitt brings our 2015 proceedings to a close with a wonderful diverse 20th century programme, repertoire in which he is considered an exponent sans pareil. But first to open our 74th series, we are delighted to welcome back one of our favourites - acclaimed pianist Finghin Collins who needs no introduction. He partners violinist Elizabeth Cooney who wowed Waterford audiences with her Springtime performance with the RTE NSO. More celebrated artists are on their way in the New Year and the details will be updated on our events page soon.
Munster Express arts correspondent, Liam Murphy made this observation in a recent review ‘There has been some discussion about developing a European dimension as part of a South East Bid for European Capital (Region) of Culture 2020, but it should be remembered that Waterford Music has a long history of bringing European performers to Waterford to share musical traditions’
Waterford-Music are proud to have been a conduit for world class artists to a platform in our city for seven decades. Since the society was established in 1942, hundreds of marvellous performances have taken place, enriching beyond measure the cultural life of Waterford City. We are excited about the year ahead. Thanks to all our members, sponsors, co-promoters, and volunteers for coming on board to help bring the very best to Waterford.
