    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.

    Calling all music lovers - would you like to be guaranteed the best seat in the house for 260 evening concerts from Ireland and around the world for a year for free? 

    RTÉ lyric fm offers you just that opportunity to hear the world’s greatest performances from the most spectacular concert halls each weeknight. The Lyric Concert is where everyone is guaranteed premium seats for sold out concerts from exclusive venues in Ireland and across Europe, as well Australia, the U.S. and further afield. All concerts are either live broadcasts or recorded as live, and 2016 is no exception with some star studded programmes as we travel around the world to hear some of the great composers and performers of our time!

    Prior to each concert (Mon-Thurs) we will bring you a selection of New CD releases where you can get an advance  preview on Prelude starting at 7pm.
