Masters at work at NCH

Wednesday, 11th November, 2020 1:44pm

Some of Cork’s finest young talent will be showcased this month when the Irish Chamber Orchestra broadcasts its latest concert live from the National Concert Hall (NCH).

The show, Master & Prodigy, will feature Cork’s own pianist Kevin Jansson who, at only 20 years of age, is widely regarded as one of the finest musicians of his generation.

Equally talented on the violin, Kevin has chosen the piano as his main instrument and is currently studying at the prestigious Julliard School in New York.

Master & Prodigy will see Kevin make his debut with the Irish Chamber Orchestra (ICO) performing Mozart’s dazzling Piano Concerto No. 13.

Another Corkman, composer Sam Perkin from Tivoli, is taking the helm for this one. Sam was only 21 when he wrote 'Pause', a reflective arrangement of 'The Foggy Dew' inspired by 1916.

The concert is part of a new collaborative Classical Livestream Series, with the National Concert Hall, providing a platform for musicians to perform live music to online audiences.

Master & Prodigy will stream live from the National Concert Hall, Dublin on 19 November at 8pm and is one of six in a new series featuring Irish National Opera, Chamber Choir Ireland, Irish Baroque Orchestra, pianists John O’Conor and Finghin Collins, singers Claudia Boyle, Gemma Ni Bhriain, Johnathan Lemalu, Dean Power, Sarah Power and many more.
