Michael McHale (online concert)


For two weeks only

We are delighted to present this special online concert by internationally renowned NI pianist, Michael McHale. Featuring the digital world premiere of Áine Mallon’s Raindrop Prelude, the concert will also include Beethoven’s Appassionata Sonata.
In 2020, we commissioned NI composer Áine Mallon to compose a piece of music for Michael in response to the Appassionata Sonata in celebration of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. Michael was due to premiere the work with a tour of NI, but for obvious reasons we had to postpone.
That tour will take place in early 2022, but in the meantime enjoy this wonderful recorded concert!
“…McHale was a wonderfully incisive soloist… this was exactly the sort of headlong, exciting adventure that Prokofiev intended it to be…” Michael Dervan, Irish Times
