This programme, devised for my 60th Birthday all-Ireland tour this November, brings together core piano composers – Beethoven, Chopin and Schubert – and two outstanding present-day composers, Belfast-born Ian Wilson and the celebrated British composer Thomas Adès.

The programme’s balance of “old and new” is united by a strong thread of human emotion in the face of life’s joys and sorrows.
