Music in Great Irish Houses
From: 2013.06.11 To: 2013.06.19
Music in Great Irish Houses is the longest running chamber music festival in Ireland. It was founded almost 40 years ago in Castletown House, Co. Kildare. Since then audiences have enjoyed the unique experience of hearing some of the world’s leading musicians play masterpieces from the chamber music repertoire in the intimate settings of the country’s splendid historic homes and buildings. The houses, built in centuries past for wealthy and Anglo-Irish families, many of them titled, provide exactly the kind of environment for which much of that music was originally written. The KBC Music in Great Irish Houses Festival has become one of the most popular and important events in the Irish classical music calendar and in addition is a social and friendly gathering for music lovers each June.
