Aedín Gormley's Sunday Matinée

Our featured artist is British composer John Tavener who passed away late last year along with concert highlights from Sydney Opera House.

Sunday May 27th

Aedín features two of pianist Simon Trpceski's (pictured) acclaimed recordings with The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and conductor Vasily Petrenko of concerti by Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev. We'll also hear excerpts from our recent Sounds Amazing Concert presented by Aedín with Niall Carroll recorded at the National Concert Hall. The RTÉ Concert Orchestra celebrate their 70th birthday with conductor Roderick Dunk and soloists Mary Hegarty (soprano), John Molloy (bass) and world champion whistler David Morris, performing a sparkling mix of popular classics, film favourites, opera and musicals.  

Sunday June 3rd

Today's concert features Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No 1 in G minor with soloist Nikolaj Znaider and the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy, as well as the Peer Gynt Suite No 1 by Edvard Grieg, a concert recorded in Lugano in Switzerland. Aedín also features a selection of recordings by mezzo soprano Magdelena Kozena (Photo by Oleg Rostovtsev) who will perform in the National Concert Hall in Dublin this week.
