Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, noon hugh­lane.ie Adm free The 50th an­niver­sary of the death of com­poser and teacher John F Larchet (1884-1967) is marked in the Hugh Lane Gallery’s Sun­days at Noon se­ries. The con­cert of­fers his com­plete songs from Raphaela Man­gan (mezzo so­prano) and Ga­van Ring (bari­tone), with se­lec­tions from his mu­sic for vi­o­lin and pi­ano from Lynda O’Con­nor (above). The pi­anist is Niall Kin­sella, artis­tic di­rec­tor of Ir­ish Song­mak­ers, the team be­hind the con­cert. MD

ART Jack B Yeats and Paul Henry: Con­trast­ing Vi­sions of Ire­land

Hunt Mu­seum, The Cus­tom House, Rut­land St, Lim­er­ick Un­til Septem­ber 30 hunt­mu­seum.com A story of two diver­gent artis­tic per­son­al­i­ties, both ma­jor fig­ures in the his­tory of 20th cen­tury Ir­ish art known as sig­nif­i­cant in­ter­preters of the West of Ire­land land­scape. Com­ple­men­tary vi­sions would per­haps be more ac­cu­rate than the “con­trast­ing” in the ti­tle. Ei­ther way, it’s a bril­liant idea to bring the two to­gether. Some 50 works have been rounded up, paint­ings and draw­ings, from pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions, no­tably in­clud­ing the Euro­pean In­vest­ment Bank in Lux­em­bourg. It is but a slight over-sim­pli­fi­ca­tion to say that while Yeats is drawn to drama and tur­bu­lence, Henry in­clines to­wards a more tran­quil view. AD
