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 20th January - Celebrating John O’Conor's 70th birthday

Paul Herriott presents tonight's concert, the 70th birthday celebration of pianist John O'Conor, live from the National Concert Hall.  Iconic Irish piano legend John O’Conor celebrates his 70th birthday in style with Beethoven’s most spiritual Piano Concerto, the magisterial, mysterious, magnificent Fourth – music of dramatic contrasts that begins in hushed introspection, features the most intricate and intimate dialogue between piano and orchestra and ends in a blaze of exhilarating passion and power. Bruckner’s lyrical Seventh Symphony – a high-watermark of the orchestral repertoire – offers its own rich and rewarding appeal under the baton of former principal conductor, Gerhard Markson.
