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 17th February, 8pm

Paul Herriott presents tonight's concert live from the National Concert Hall, Dublin. Donncha Dennehy’s work, commissioned by RTÉ, was inspired by the cranes on Dublin’s skyline. It’s an exciting, adventurous, intelligent portrayal of this modern phenomenon, with at its heart the ‘oasis in the sky’ of the operator’s cabin where he can observe the world below. The composer calls it a work of ‘industrial strength’. Crane is complemented by Rachmaninov’s third piano concerto, which is increasingly regarded as one of the major concertos of our age, and the flamboyant, energetic, even raucous symphony by César Franck. 
Donnacha Dennehy: Crane RTÉ Commission 
Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor 
Franck: Symphony in D minor 
Nikolay Khozyainov (piano) 
Daniel Blendulf (conductor)
