Finghin Collins piano

Beethoven Piano concerto No. 4 in G, op. 58
Piano concerto No. 5 in E flat, op. 73, ‘Emperor’

Star pianist Finghin Collins and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra won a prolonged standing ovation from a packed National Concert Hall in January 2020 when they performed the first three Beethoven piano concertos. They come together again to complete the cycle, this time under conductor Kenneth Montgomery. Join them to experience the last two Beethoven piano concertos, both masterpieces of the repertoire, the magical 4th and the glorious 5th.

‘Acclaimed Irish pianist Finghin Collins was the soloist for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No 1. As he swayed and allowed the orchestral opening to engulf him, it was obvious this was going to be something special. It was as if Collins himself became the concerto, with an absolutely mesmerising and exquisite performance through all three movements.’ (The Bournemouth Echo, 2015)

Presented by RTÉ Concert Orchestra
