The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott

Michael Lee continues the celebration of Czech music tonight featuring composer Jirí Kaderábek - one of the most sought-after Czech composers of his generation

Friday 20th January - Celebrating John O’Conor's 70th birthday

Paul Herriott presents tonight's concert, the 70th birthday celebration of pianist John O'Conor, live from the National Concert Hall.  Iconic Irish piano legend John O’Conor celebrates his 70th birthday in style with Beethoven’s most spiritual Piano Concerto, the magisterial, mysterious, magnificent Fourth – music of dramatic contrasts that begins in hushed introspection, features the most intricate and intimate dialogue between piano and orchestra and ends in a blaze of exhilarating passion and power. Bruckner’s lyrical Seventh Symphony – a high-watermark of the orchestral repertoire – offers its own rich and rewarding appeal under the baton of former principal conductor, Gerhard Markson.
