Dublin developed as a major musical city during the Georgian period, however, it is not always realised how closely this was linked to the types of public and private venues available. Buildings and institutions had a direct influence on the choice of composers and works performed. This talk examines sme unexpected results of this and underlies how music was affected as much by fashionable trends as the visual and decorative arts.
Adrian Le Harivel is curator of British Art at the National Gallery of Ireland and has published works such as the National Gallery of Ireland: Essential Guide and Irish Watercolours and Drawings.
