The Friday Concert with Paul Herriott

Paul Herriott presents 'Big on Britten: Saint Nicolas' with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.

Intermezzo - Big on Britten: Saint Nicolas

Tomás Clancy and Raymond Blake enjoy their interval refreshments while joining the dots between Britten's St Nicholas and Orwell's 1984, and finally deciding whether Sassicaia is indeed the best wine to drink either while listening to Rossini's music, or eating the dish that bears his name.

Friday 20th January - Celebrating John O’Conor's 70th birthday

Paul Herriott presents tonight's concert, the 70th birthday celebration of pianist John O'Conor, live from the National Concert Hall.  Iconic Irish piano legend John O’Conor celebrates his 70th birthday in style with Beethoven’s most spiritual Piano Concerto, the magisterial, mysterious, magnificent Fourth – music of dramatic contrasts that begins in hushed introspection, features the most intricate and intimate dialogue between piano and orchestra and ends in a blaze of exhilarating passion and power. Bruckner’s lyrical Seventh Symphony – a high-watermark of the orchestral repertoire – offers its own rich and rewarding appeal under the baton of former principal conductor, Gerhard Markson.
