The Friday Concert with Paul Herriott

The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra present a 'Scottish Fantasy' live from the National Concert Hall

Intermezzo - Titans of the Heart

Why the premier performance of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony was the Live Aid of its day, and how the image of Herbert Von Karajan seared itself onto the retinas of a generation are among the topics under discussion when Tomas Clancy and Raymond Blake convene in the foyer for another half time debrief.

Friday February 23rd, 7.30pm

A stirring legend of love, sacrifice, war and a fabled drowned city, a masterpiece concerto written in the immediate aftermath of the carnage of the First World War, and a symphony of heroic dimensions in which fate came knocking at the door. RTÉ’s new Principal Guest Conductor Nathalie Stutzman (photo Simon Fowler) returns to the podium with Alban Gerhardt stepping into the spotlight for Elgar’s unforgettable Cello Concerto. We'll also enjoy Beethoven's monumental work of unrelenting vigour, the Symphony No. 5, as it moves through tumultuous challenge and quest to a euphoric conclusion, every bit as memorable as its momentous opening declaration.
