The Lyric Concert with Paul Herriott Monday 29 July 2013

Join Liz Nolan and Marty Whelan on Friday 24th June at 8pm as they present RTÉ lyric fm Top Orchestral Hits, as selected by RTÉ lyric fm presenters with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gavin Moloney.

From Bach’s ethereal Air to Bernstein’s exuberant Candide Overture, from Mozart’s heavenly clarinet Adagio to Ennio Morricone’s hypnotic Gabriel’s Oboe, a magical cornucopia of musical masterpieces spanning four centuries is programmed. Mahler’s sublime Adagietto (Symphony No. 5), Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’, Barber’s heart-stopping Adagio for Strings and Copland’s thrilling Fanfare for the Common Man add power and passion of their own. Overtures by Verdi (The Force of Destiny) and Mozart (The Marriage of Figaro) serve up thrilling orchestral majesty complemented by Fauré’s shimmering Pavane and Massenet’s bewitching ‘Meditation’ (Thaïs).
