Making an Entrance: Young Artists: Dr. Fionnuala Moynihan
19:00 - 20:00
Concluding the Young Artists Series of Friday evening recitals is pianist Dr. Fionnuala Moynihan.
Dr. Fionnuala Moynihan became the first person to be awarded a Doctorate in Music Performance from the Royal Irish Academy of Music and the Dublin City University in 2009. Fionnuala is widely acknowledged as one of Ireland's leading pianists. She has a particular affinity with the works of baroque and classical composers.
She performed the Complete Piano Sonatos of Mozart in the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, in June 2010. She is the only Irish pianist to have undertaken the formidable challenge of performing this cycle in its entirety in Ireland. Fionnuala has given solo recitals and concerto performances throughout the U.K., France, Holland, Italy, Israel, U.S.A., Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Russia, Poland, Japan and Hungary.
She won the John Field prize at the 2009 Dublin International Piano Competition and was a featured artist on BBC Radio 4's documentary on John Field's life. She has recorded numerous recitals and live performances for Lyric FM radio. Her debut CD in 2015 is a classical-trad fusion and showcases Fionnuala's love for both the classical and traditional genres.
Her most recent CD, 'Melodies of Nations' was released in June 2017.
Fionnuala will perform a selection of works by Schubert, Tchaikovsky and Chopin, and will conclude the evening's recital with her own arrangement of 'Mo Ghile Mear'.
