Finghin Collins
Piano

St Iberius Church, Wexford

After months of inactivity, pianist Finghin Collins takes to the road again this winter, embarking on an extensive national recital tour which he has named after one of the major pieces in the programme – Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy. This is Schubert’s most demanding work for piano solo, which Schubert named after one of his own songs “Der Wanderer” – music from the song appears in each of the linked movements of the piece. The second half of the programme takes us on the day’s journey into night with a diverse range of pieces inspired by midday and evening, including Amy Beach’s magical conjuring of the song of the hermit thrush.

Bach: English Suite No 3 in G minor
Schubert: Wanderer Fantasie Op. 15
Gerald Barry: Midday (Ros Tapestry Suite)
John Field: “Midi
Liszt: Harmonies du Soir
Amy Beach: Hermit Thrush at Eve
Bartók: The Night’s Music from “Out of Doors”
Chopin: Scherzo No. 2 Op. 31

Ticket prices: €17, €15 (concessions) & €5 (students)
