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 CONCERT, FRIDAY May 26TH AT 8PM

Paul Herriott presents tonight's concert live from the National Concert Hall in Dublin. Hailed for its ‘rainbow exuberance’ (The Times) Magnus Lindberg’s exhilarating large-scale Clarinet Concerto was written for the extraordinary Kari Kriikku, who revels in its fast-changing textures, allusions to Brahms, Debussy and jazz and virtuosic demands. With its progression of moods, beauty and terror, Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 is an enthralling experience that moves from funeral darkness to the transcendent release of the glorious Adagietto. Popularised by the film Death in Venice, it is a love song to the composer’s wife that unfolds in one long, hypnotic breath.
