The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott

Paul Herriott presents a live concert broadcast from the National Concert Hall, Dublin, featuring the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra.

Friday December 6th - Schnelzer's 'Burn My Letters: Remembering Clara', Tchaikovsky & Berlioz

Paul Herriott presents a concert live from the National Concert Hall, Dublin. Chief conductor Jaime Martín returns to conduct the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra with the violinist Ellinor D'Melon (Photo Kaupo Kikkas) for Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. The concert also features the Irish Premiere of Albert Schnelzer's Burn My Letters: Remembering Clara, written in tribute to the pioneering composer. Based on her letters to life-long family friend Johannes Brahms - Clara voiced by wild and free flute, Brahms by a more controlled and cautious bassoon - it's an intriguing, enchanting, intimate and illuminating dialogue between the fellow composers. 

Schnelzer: Burn My Letters: Remembering Clara (Irish Premiere & Co-commission from Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Gävle Symphony Orchestra and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra)
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto
Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique
