Lorcan Murray's Classic Drive Thursday 26 November 2020
Lorcan has a festive selection for his #DriveCDPick this week in the shape of the new Jonas Kaufmann album It's Christmas! Kaufmann, one of the most acclaimed operatic tenors, echoes his own holiday memories and joys, celebrating the most festive time of the year with a unique selection of beloved songs and carols. The album features 40 favorites that reflect the many facets of Christmas, from ancient Christian hymns to contemporary pop classics. Listen in all this week to hear selections from It's Christmas!
This year marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig Van Beethoven. We're joining in the worldwide celebrations by playing 250 Beethoven pieces over 250 days! We begin on Monday 27th January so tune in to Classic Drive every weekday to hear our favourite Beethoven works - and don't forget to send us your suggestions too!
It’s common knowledge around the RTÉ lyric fm office that Lorcan Murray just loves his records - he has a huge personal collection at home! So he is delighted to be going back to black at 33rpm, every Thursday at 6.30pm when you can hear some of the best new releases and classic recordings on vinyl.
