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 15th

For the world’s leading opera houses, Juan Diego Flórez is very much the bel canto tenor of choice and he is Aedín's featured artist today. We'll hear recordings including his memorable performance in Donizetti’s La Fille de Regiment. And in our Sunday concert, a live recording of Mendelssohn's Cello Sonata No. 2 in D, op. 58 performed by cellist Quirine Viersen with pianist Thomas Beijer, and the Shostakovich String Quartet No. 1 in C, op. 49 performed by the Mandelring Quartet.

Sunday December 22nd, at the earlier time of 12 to 2pm

Stunning choral works this afternoon by American Contemporary composer Morten Lauridsen. In 2006, Lauridsen was named an 'American Choral Master' by the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2007 he received the National Medal of Arts from the President in a White House ceremony, "for his composition of radiant choral works combining musical beauty, power and spiritual depth that have thrilled audiences worldwide."
