Three years after his debut recital in glór, Sean Shannon returns presenting a diverse range of solo piano works composed throughout the centuries. From the solemnity and severity of Bach’s music to the poetry of Chopin, the intensity and volatility of Scriabin and the unorthodox harmonies and jazz influence present in American composer Aaron Copland’s music, this programme takes the listener through a brief history of classical music over the centuries, exploring a wide range of styles, emotions, imagery and themes. Each piece and its composer will be discussed during the recital.

 17-year-old pianist Sean Shannon received his initial piano lessons from Maeghan Dineen through the Music Generation programme. Currently studying with Tatiana Timofeeva, in September 2022 he will commence a Bachelor in Music Performance on an entrance scholarship at the Royal Irish Academy of Music under Professor Réamonn Keary. He gave his debut solo recital at glór in 2019, at the age of 14. In 2021 he was appointed Young Associate Artist at glór and was featured on RTÉ Nationwide. Sean has also successfully participated in numerous national piano competitions, most recently the Feis Ceoil. He previously received a scholarship funded by the Maoin Cheoil an Chláir/Limerick School of Music, and for several years received the Ennis Lions Club Mary Keohane Bursary.
