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 24th March - Berlioz, Poulenc and Saint-Saëns

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.
