Aedín Gormley's Sunday Matinée

Music for your Sunday afternoon featuring live performances from across the globe and standout works from our featured artists.

Sunday December 16th

Aedín includes a selection of recording from French pianist Hélène Grimaud including her most recently released album 'Memory', which stirs profound emotions through the elegant simplicity of miniatures by Chopin, Debussy, Satie and Silvestrov. And in our live concert, we heard Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 in C, op. 61 performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Riccardo Muti. (Helene Grimaud - Copyright Mat Hennek, DG)
