In 1992 the album A Woman's Heart, performed by six leading female Irish artists, took the country by storm. It sold over three-quarters of a million in Ireland alone - making it one of the most successful Irish albums of all time - and a million records worldwide.

Later in April, viewers can catch the RTÉ CO in action again, this time performing The Songs of Leonard Cohen with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, screening on April 25th on RTÉ One at 10.30 pm.
