Mozart and Beethoven Piano and Wind Quintets


Mozart and Beethoven Piano and Wind Quintets


Mozart and Beethoven’s quintets for piano and wind instruments are clever and charming and considered two of the great works from the chamber music canon


For this concert, which is exclusive to Drogheda, Irish pianist Finghin Collins returns to Drogheda with an ensemble of distinguished and mostly Irish wind players including Matthew Manning oboe, Macdara Ó Seireadáin clarinet, Constantin Barcov bassoon and Cormac Ó hAodáin french horn.

Book tickets in advance.

One of Ireland’s most successful musicians, Finghin Collins was born in Dublin in 1977 and, following initial lessons with his sister Mary, studied piano at the Royal Irish Academy of Music with John O’Conor and at the Geneva Conservatoire with Dominique Merlet.


Winner of the RTÉ Musician of the Future Competition in 1994 and the Classical Category at the National Entertainment Awards in Ireland in 1998, he went on to take first prize at the Clara Haskil International Piano Competition in Switzerland in 1999. Since then he has continued to enjoy a flourishing international career that takes him all over Europe and the United States, as well to the Far East and Australia.  In October 2017, the National University of Ireland conferred on him an honorary Degree of Doctor of Music.


His mastery was so assured and complete. He didn’t play as though trying to prove something, but rather as though recounting some little story he had uncovered in each one. This was transcendent playing…
