Ficino Ensemble | Helen Gregg narrator | Marc Mac Lochlainn director
SAINT-SAËNS Carnival of the Animals | SCHUBERT Trout Quintet
Music for Galway and Baboró International Arts Festival for Children are delighted to partner on the development and presentation of ‘Carnival of the Animals’ in Galway during Baboró 2019. The co-presentation of Saint-Saëns’ beloved work includes a newly commissioned child-friendly text written and performed by actor Helen Gregg.
To continue the animal theme, Ficino Ensemble will perform Schubert’s beautiful Piano Quintet in A major, D 667, well known for its fourth movement in which the composer played with variations on the theme of his song ‘Die Forelle’ – the Trout.
For extra performances of the Carnival on 14/16 October see www.baboro.ie
An arts-in-education outreach element will be provided by Maoin Cheoil na Gaillimhe, with musicians working in twelve schools in Galway city and county over five weeks in advance of the festival and one week after the festival in a post-engagement workshops.
