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.
