Hugh Tinney

Hugh Tinney, piano


Saturday 17th February 2024 | 7.00pm



Much loved by DMA audiences, Hugh has made a major contribution to Irish concert life for over thirty years, including multiple solo recital series, chamber music series, and frequent concerto appearances with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Irish Chamber Orchestra and Ulster Orchestra.

In 2018, in recognition of his 60th Birthday Hugh fulfilled some key celebratory engagements – including a performance of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto with the RTÉ NSO under Jonas Alber to a sold-out National Concert Hall in Dublin.

He teaches at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and has been a jury member at several international piano competitions, including Santander and Dublin.  He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Music by the National University of Ireland in 2007.

Tickets are €28 per person and can be purchased below. The concert commences at 7pm and doors will be closed until the next break in music.

The DMA Memory Book

In 2021, the DMA published a Memory Book, listing all concerts and music played since the first concert in 1987. The book has wonderful sketches from concerts at Tullynally drawn by the late Jeremy Williams. There are also several delightful short 'memories' from performers and audience members. Books are €10 each plus P&P at €3 per book and you can purchase them by contacting
If you have booked to attend a forthcoming concert, you can reserve books to collect saving you the cost of postage.  We are now operating our events as 'cashless' so we ask you email your order to in advance and pay into the DMA account directly and you can collect your books at the concert.
