Piano recital by Dr. Fionnuala Moynihan

We have received notification of this concert at Triskel, which may be of interest to our members.

Dr Fionnuala Moynihan is performing the finale of her recital series of Schubert’s Completed Piano Sonatas in Triskel Christchurch on Friday 8 June at 8pm. Fionnuala said, ‘These sonatas are filled with wonderful melodies, inspirational harmony, virtuosic passages and spirituality. They are musical poetry and convey the wealth of human emotion Schubert felt throughout his life. A humble man, his music let his heart, his genius and his soul take flight. I truly feel his music speaks to everyone and spans the vast array of human emotions from the depths of despair to the heights of true happiness’

Tickets are €15/€12 concession and can be booked here:
