    The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott

    Join Paul Herriott as he brings us some of the best concerts from the world's concert halls this New Year. In tonight's concert we travel to the Musikverein in Vienna.

    Friday 24th October
    We're live from the NCH, Dublin, as trombonist extraordinaire Christian Lindberg returns for an evening of passion and romance. Sibelius’ rousing Karelia Suite is a colourful picture-postcard from the heartland of Finnish folklore, Tchaikovsky’s storm-driven Fifth Symphony a baring of the Russian soul. And for sheer showmanship, Lindberg plays, recites and conducts his own brilliantly quirky Helikon Wasp.

    RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
