The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott

Paul Herriott presents Hamlet's Fantasy live from the NCH with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra

Intermezzo - Hamlet's Fantasy

How audiophile concerns have been washed away by the Youtube habit of watching great performances and a possible ingredient for a VAT are among the subjects discussed when Tomas Clancy and Raymond Blake meet once more for an interval vodka at the National Concert Hall.

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.
