Music for Galway & NUI Galway present
Celebrating Emily Anderson in the Beethoven Year
Symposium & Concert
A day of celebration of one of Galway’s finest daughters, Emily Anderson. Music for Galway has honoured her each year and this year is no different. Given her close connections to Beethoven, it is even more important that we remember her in 2020.
Find out more about this extraordinary woman who is only starting to get the recognition she deserves. Immerse yourself in late Beethoven as John O’Conor tackles his final three piano sonatas.
2.00pm – 2:45 pm: John O’Conor – A Life Performing Beethoven
