The Friday Concert with Paul Herriott

Michael Lee presents the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra live from the National Concert Hall in a programme of 'Hungarian Stories'.

Intermezzo - Hungarian Stories

Conversation in the lobby tonight alights on Kodaly's little known influence on Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind and the burnt orange notes of Liszt's favourite wine, Tokaji, as Tomas Clancy and Raymond Blake meet up for an interval jar.

Watch: Friday 24th February, 8pm

Paul Herriott presents tonight's concert live from the National Concert Hall with the RTE National Symphony Orchestra in a celebration of Tchaikovsky. Led by the ‘dynamism and steely-finger energy’ (CultureNorthernIreland.com) of Belfast-born piano virtuoso Barry Douglas, our two-part celebration of the master of melody, Tchaikovsky, begins with a brace of tune-filled Piano Concertos: the First, resplendent with one of the most familiar and lavish themes in the repertoire, and his last work, the athletically graceful Third. The Tempest is a fantasy overture of dramatic richness, Romeo and Juliet a romantic and ripe evocation of Shakespeare’s young ‘star-crossed lovers’.
