Great Music in Irish Houses Festival 2019 - Muriel Herbert and Beethoven

Performances from the 2019 Great Music in Irish Houses Festival, with music by Muriel Herbert and Beethoven.

In our third programme from the 2019 Great Music in Irish Houses Festival, we begin with a selection of songs from British composer Muriel Herbert - her Children’s Songs, I Think of Thee in the Night and Jour des morts, performed by soprano Ailish Tynan and pianist Finghin Collins. Then, Finghin is joined by cellist Mark Coppey in a performance of Beethoven’s Cello Sonata in G minor, written for King Friedrich Wilhelm II of Prussia, who was an amateur cellist.

To complete today’s recital, soprano Ailish Tynan returns with Grieg’s Sechs Lieder, written in the late 1880s and all set to the words of German poets.
