Acclaimed classical duo for afternoon treat

Wednesday, 8th February, 2017 1:00am

A special treat is in store for classical music lovers this Sunday, 12 February, as Music for Galway explores a new afternoon slot of 3pm with a concert in the Aula Maxima in NUI Galway. The acclaimed Irish duo of Catherine Leonard (violin) and Hugh Tinney (piano) will make a long overdue Galway debut as they take in the City of the Tribes while on their nationwide tour.

The programme features a great variety of music spanning from the 18th to 21st centuries with works for violin and piano by Bach, Schubert, Messiaen and Raymond Deane. True to Music for Galway’s season theme Aimez-vous Brahms, the magnificent sonata No. 3 provides the concert finale.

Catherine and Tinney, two of Ireland’s foremost musicians with highly successful solo careers in Ireland and internationally, have performed as a duo since 2000. Their musically scintillating partnership rewards with exciting and beautiful performances of a broad range of repertoire.

This special Galway event also doubles as the Music for Galway Friends’ Concert. MFG Friends make a donation of €45 per season. In turn they enjoy reduced ticket prices, regular newsletters, and a Bring-a-Friend ticket, which allows them to do just that – bring a friend for free to one concert. To join, contact MFG at or 091-705962.

Tickets to Catherine Leonard and Hugh Tinney are €18, MFG Friends and concessions €14 and students €6. To book, contact 091-705962, Opus 2 on High Street or see
