The Lyric Feature - My Tunes: Brian Byrne
Aedín Gormley invites a guest to select, listen to and discuss a number of music pieces that hold a special meaning for them. In this programme her guest is Irish musician Brian Byrne, recently appointed artist in residence with the RTE Concert Orchestra. Navan-born Byrne, based in Los Angeles since 2003, is rapidly becoming one of Ireland’s most successful musical ambassadors, as a composer, conductor, songwriter, arranger and pianist. Recognition for his film scores includes a Golden Globe nomination and two World Soundtrack Awards for Albert Nobbs. He has also collaborated with Barbra Streisand, Bono, Van Morrison and Gladys Knight to name a few. He is currently working on the music for the new Riverdance show "Heartbeat of Home".
