The Friday Concert with Paul Herriott

Live from the National Concert Hall this evening Paul Herriott presents 'Gershwin's Genius' with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland.

Intermezzo - Gershwin's Genius

Ireland's foremost foyer tag team, Tomás Clancy and Raymond Blake, enjoy the works of Adams and Gershwin, and weigh in on the great Twentieth Century debates, from Marxism v Capitalism to Pepsi v Coke.

WATCH: FRIDAY CONCERT, FRIDAY May 19TH AT 8PM

Paul Herriott presents tonight's concert live from the National Concert Hall in Dublin. Elgar’s masterpiece oratorio, The Dream of Gerontius, was the largest work he composed and its scale matches its depth of feeling and devotional fervour. Set to John Henry Newman’s poem depicting a soul’s journey through death to Purgatory and the promise of redemption, it is a richly orchestrated and moving testimony to the power of faith. With support from the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir and three leading soloists – tenor Andrew Kennedy, baritone Neal Davies and the ‘utterly compelling’ (Arts Desk) Irish mezzo Rachel Kelly – this will be a night to remember.
