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 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)
