The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott Monday 2 September 2013

The Lyric Concert with Evelyn Grant

Join us in the Lyric Concert this evening for two greatly loved works Ravel's Rapsodie espagnole and Stravinsky's The Firebird.

Watch: Friday 24th March - Berlioz, Puolenc and Saint-Saens

Michael Lee presents tonight's concert live from the National Concert Hall in Dublin. Composed in the wake of his failed marriage to Irish actress Harriet Smithson, Berlioz’s Les nuits d’été is a haunting leave-taking of love, with Ailish Tynan’s ‘lyric voice of delicious purity’ (Opera Now) sublimely plumbing its melancholic depths. Poulenc’s saucy ballet suite Les biches playfully hints at a host of other composers (Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky included) in a deliciously frothy and naughty concoction. Saint-Saëns’ Third Symphony is a feast of memorable melodies, none more glorious than its magically twinkling piano duet theme and soaring organ chorale.
