The Mall, Waterford City, Waterford,
Waterford Music Series presents Finghin Collins as one of eight evening concerts by a variety of Irish & internationally renowned musicians to be held in the Large Room, City Hall Waterford from September 2019 to April 2020.
Waterford Music was founded in June 1942 for the promotion of chamber music, supporting local artists and inviting distinguished artists from worldwide to perform at Waterford’s Georgian Large Room, City Hall. Today it presents eight chamber music concerts during each season from September to April.
Finghin Collins is one of Waterford Music’s favourite musicians and Waterford Music welcomes him back to commemorate his winning the Clara Haskil International Piano Competition in Switzerland in 1999. Collins reprises two important piano sonatas – Mozart’s ‘Alla Turka’, c. 1783 and one of Schubert’s famous three last sonatas written in 1828. He intersperses these with two short pieces he has been instrumental in commissioning for the New Ross Piano Festival, one each by Marion Ingoldsby and Philip Martin.
Mozart: Sonata in A major ‘Alla Turca’
Philip Martin: Ros Tapestry Suite No. 11b
Marian Ingoldsby: Ros Tapestry Suite No. 14
Schubert: Sonata in A major, D. 959
