Aedín Gormley's Sunday Matinée Sunday 16 May 2021
Aedín's featured artist this afternoon is pianist Jeremy Denk, one of America's foremost pianists and winner of a 2013 MacArthur 'Genius' Fellowship and today we'll hear part of his recording of J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations. In our live concert, New Zealand-born Gemma New conducts the Ulster Orchestra in a programme packed full of melodic sparkle that includes the Stravinsky Danses concertantes and Mendelssohn’s musical postcard - his Italian Symphony.

Plus a selection of recordings from renowned Spanish operatic soprano Victoria de Los Angeles (pictured).
