Michael McHale: The Romantic Piano – Recital Series

“These programmes combine beloved works by some of the Romantic era’s greatest pianist-composers with stories of romance and heartbreak, from Romeo and Juliet to the Greek myth of Hero and Leander, from love song arrangements by Clara and Robert Schumann to more contemporary takes on love and loss.

As I turn 40 this year, I have also included music that has played an important part in my musical life, from my childhood through to the present day, and composers with whom I have a special connection. For the final concert in the series I’m thrilled to welcome to the Triskel stage some of my colleagues from the MTU Cork School of Music Keyboard Department for a celebration of some of the most iconic music written for piano duet.”
