One of Ireland’s most successful musicians, pianist Finghin Collins brings an exciting programme to Canterbury.
Mozart and Schubert sonatas are accompanied by three pieces from The Ros Tapestry Suite, an ambitious project comprising 15 works for solo piano by different Irish composers. The result is a full-bodied, rhythmically exciting musical response to fifteen panels of tapestry embroidery, which trace the history of the Norman invasion of Ireland.
‘Of Finghin Collins as soloist, little needs to be said that has not been said before: he is exceptionally fluent, exceptionally intelligent, exceptionally sensitive, responding to every possible nuance…’ Piers Burton-Page, (International Record Review)
