Barry’s playing schedule is truly astonishing; he could be in Ireland one week, in China the next and USA the next, so it was a bit of a job to try and find a date which would suit him to come to Sligo!

Barry exploded into the work piano scene when he won the gold medal outright in the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1986, the first non-Russian pianist to do since 1958. He is Artistic Director of the Clandeboye Festival in County Down. He founded Camerata Ireland in 1998 which has Queen Elizabeth and Mary McAleese as Joint Patrons. The programme consists of a selection of romantic piano pieces with focus on the great Appassionata Sonata.

A night to treasure!
