Artist Profile:
Hugh Tinney

Hugh Tinney first came to international recognition by winning first-prize in two European competitions, the 1983 Pozzoli in Italy and the 1984 Paloma O’Shea in Spain, and since then he has performed in more than thirty-five countries throughout Europe, the United States, Latin America and the Far East. Hugh has made a major contribution to Irish concert life for over forty years, in multiple solo recital series, chamber music series, and frequent concerto appearances. He has played chamber music with many distinguished individuals and groups; he and violinist Catherine Leonard collaborated as a duo for many years.

In 2018, in recognition of his 60th Birthday, Hugh fulfilled some key celebratory engagements including a 12-stop recital tour of Ireland & Northern Ireland, and a performance of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto with the RTÉ NSO to a sold-out National Concert Hall (NCH) in Dublin.

Plans for the 2023/4 season include appearances at Festivals in Dublin, Galway and Westport, as well as the world première of a new work for piano and orchestra by Raymond Deane with the RTÉ Concerto Orchestra at the 2024 New Music Dublin festival.
