24th Sligo Festival of Baroque Music, 2019 | Festival Line-up Announced

Taking place on the weekend of 27-29 September 2019, the IMRO sponsored 24th Sligo Festival of Baroque Music, is set to offer a rich variety of beautiful baroque music, with authentic performances from players and singers from home and abroad.

Each year the festival draws a large local audience as well as visitors to Sligo attracted by the quality of the music and the friendly, informal atmosphere. Participating venues include The Model and Calry Church, both located on The Mall.

The renowned ensemble Collegium Marianum from Prague, who delighted the Festival audience in 2014, return to play three concerts this year, ranging from Bach on Friday, to 17th century virtuoso showpieces on Saturday, and concluding on Sunday with masterpieces for flute by Vivaldi and Czech composers. Other concerts will feature an ensemble of young musicians from the RIAM in Dublin, Nina Treadwell and Sarah Groser playing lyrical duets for strings, and the Sligo Baroque Orchestra, led by Nicola Cleary, in an adventurous programme of rarely heard works – including one with Leonard Barry on uilleann pipes.

Nurturing the musical development of young performers has always been a key theme of the Festival. This year, visiting players of Collegium Marianum will give masterclasses in baroque performance on flute, violin and cello, and an event for schools will introduce students to the world of baroque music.

The late concert on Saturday at 10pm is always a favourite with the festival audience. The music and the mood are nocturnal, gentle and reflective. Appropriate to the hour, Colin Booth, the well-known English harpsichord player, maker and scholar, will play dark, expressive pieces from 17th century France, by Louis Couperin, d’Anglebert and others.

A weekend ticket, which admits to all concerts and events, is extremely good value at €90/75, and there are double bill offers for concerts on Saturday and Sunday.  http://www.sligobaroquefestival.com
