RTÉ Concert Orchestra presents: Beethoven 250 with Finghin Collins

Thursday, 23 January 2020, 8.00pm

Launching Beethoven’s 250th birthday year in style with star pianist Finghin Collins and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. An evening of glorious music-making as Finghin directs the orchestra from the piano for the first three piano concertos, all from the first 30 years of Beethoven’s life.

‘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.’ Bournemouth Echo, 2015
