About

Michael McHale’s best-selling first album on the Lyric label The Irish Piano (CD139) has been described as ‘a scintillating recital… fascinating from start to stop’, whilst Gramophone praised ‘the singing sensibility of McHale's sensitive and polished pianism.’ Supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the award-winning pianist now joins forces with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Courtney Lewis to explore two contrasting concertos by Irish composers, one old and one new. John Field’s Piano Concerto No.3 is a lesser-known gem from the early Romantic era while Philip Hammond’s Piano Concerto, in a premiere recording, is described by the composer as being “retro-Romantic… a bit of a journey from darkness to light.”
