Celebrating the 60th birthday of one of Ireland’s most-loved pianists
A frequent visitor to Drogheda, we’re delighted to welcome Hugh Tinney back for a concert to mark the occasion of his 60th birthday. Part of a nationwide tour, Hugh will perform pieces that are important and loved by him including works by Beethoven, Schubert, Ian Wilson and Chopin.
Since winning first prize at both the 1983 Pozzoli and 1984 Paloma O’Shea piano competitions in Italy and Spain, Hugh Tinney has performed throughout Europe, the USA, Latin America and the Far East.
A prize in the 1987 Leeds Piano Competition earned him a busy career in Great Britain, performing with many major orchestras including the London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, Philharmonia, City of Birmingham, Royal Liverpool, Royal Scottish and BBC National of Wales.
Tinney is a sensitive performer in this sort of repertoire.
