The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott

Paul Herriott revisits one of the highlight concerts by the National Symphony Orchestra during their 2016-2017 season, recorded with superstar violinist Daniel Hope.

Paul Herriott presents a concert live from the National Concert Hall, Dublin. The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra under conductor Clemens Schuldt perform music from the father of American classical music, Aaron Copland, and two giants of 20th-century Russian music: Aram Khachaturian and Dmitri Shostakovich with rising violin star Alina Pogostkina.

Khachaturian: Violin Concerto in D minor
Shostakovich: Symphony No.1 in F minor, Op.10

Friday March 30th, 7.30pm (Good Friday)

Paul Herriott presents Bach's St John's Passion in a performance recorded earlier this afternoon in the National Concert Hall. One of the most magnificent and moving of all choral works, Bach's St John Passion is a compelling re-telling of the events leading up to Christ's crucifixion on Good Friday. Operatic in its scale and intensity, it's a bold, dramatic and emotional experience that speaks of human frailty and divine redemption with overwhelming honesty and is a devotional masterpiece of searing power.
