LISTEN BACK TO THIS CONCERT

CALMING THE FURIES

Elisabeth Leonskaja brings her warmth of sound and incomparable feeling to this Beethoven concerto, at its heart a powerful dialogue between piano and orchestra that (which) Liszt likened to 'Orpheus calming the Furies in the underworld'.

Shostakovich appeased the Furies of the Stalinist regime in his 5th Symphony, one of the greatest of the 20th century, and to open, a new piece by one of the leading Irish composers.

FRIDAY 6 FEBRUARY, 8PM
Soundings: Gerald Barry in conversation with Michael Dungan, 6.45pm
NATIONAL CONCERT HALL
