RTÉ LYRIC FM’s 20th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION featuring EVELYN GRANT’S WEEKEND DRIVE - LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
Nothing beats live music and what better way to kick of RTÉ lyric fm’s 20th birthday week than with a concert in the company of Ireland’s finest young musicians on Weekend Drive. We’ll be broadcasting from the Ballroom of Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park on Saturday 27th April. Pianist Kevin Jansson will perform Rachmaninov's 'Piano Sonata No. 2', following which he will be joined by cellist Killian White to play Franck's 'Sonata in A for Piano and Cello'. Kevin is the recipient of many international awards, most recently first prize at the Jeune Chopin competition in Switzerland, while Killian is the winner of the 2018 RDS Music Bursary, the largest of its kind in Europe. In the second half of the concert they will be joined by Patrick Rafter (violin), Ed Creedon (viola) and Aura Stone (double bass) for a performance of Schubert’s 'Piano Quintet in A ‘Trout’ (‘Die Forelle’)''.
