Hall's treasured organ really steals the show

Published 03/04/2012

The Studio Symphony Orchestra maintained its high standard of music-making in a popular programme on Saturday in the annual Havelock Nelson concert.

In the first half showpiece Michael McHale, one of Ireland's finest young pianists, was totally in command of Mozart's Concerto No 20.

The second half was devoted to Saint-Saens's masterpiece Symphony No3. Here there was much fine playing under the firm direction of David Openshaw, but the real star was the Mulholland organ itself.

This Ulster Hall treasure - in its 150th year - is simply not heard often enough.
