Finghin Collins & Dearbhla Collins

Thursday, 25 May 2023, 7.30pm

As part of its ongoing 175th Anniversary celebrations, the Royal Irish Academy of Music welcomes home some of its most distinguished alumni for our ‘Homecoming Concerts’, a series of recitals connecting some of Ireland’s finest talents to their musical alma mater.

The summer RIAM alumnus Finghin Collins completed his Bachelor studies at the RIAM, he went on to win the Clara Haskil International Piano Competition, establishing him as the foremost Irish concert pianist of his generation. Finghin is joined in this piano duo concert by his equally distinguished sibling, Dearbhla Collins, herself a pre-eminent vocal coach and collaborative pianist. Works by Irish composers Sean Doherty and RIAM professor Joan Trimble sit alongside the great pieces of the duo repertoire, such as Franz Schubert's monumental Fantasie in F minor, in this concert which explores the limits of repertoire for piano duos and duets.
