    Paul Herriott presents tonight’s concert with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the RTÉ ConTempo Quartet live from the National Concert Hall. London Symphony Orchestra principal flute Adam Walker gave the 2014 premiere of Huw Watkins’ Flute Concerto in what one critic described as ‘a rollercoaster ride from beginning to end’ (The Guardian). RTÉ’s new resident string ensemble, the RTÉ ConTempo Quartet, joins the orchestra for Elgar’s sumptuous showcase for strings, the Introduction and Allegro, composed in 1905 for the newly-formed LSO. Brahms’ First Symphony is a work of mighty scale and scope justifying its description as ‘Beethoven’s Tenth’. 
    Elgar:  Introduction and Allegro 
    Watkins:  Flute Concerto (Irish premiere) 
    Brahms: Symphony No. 1 in C minor 
    RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
