The Friday Concert with Paul Herriott

Paul Herriott presents the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra live from the NCH in a concert entitled 'Fantastique'.

Intermezzo - Fantastique!

Mortality and its various reminders are contemplated by Tomas Clancy and Raymond Blake as they come to terms with Saint-Saëns, "Ash Envy" and the enduring charms of the defibrillator.

Watch: Friday 24th March - Berlioz, Puolenc and Saint-Saens

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.
