Friday February 16th, 7.30pm - the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra celebrates its 70th birthday

Paul Herriott presents a concert live from the National Concert Hall, Dublin, celebrating the 70th birthday of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. On this auspicious occasion, the orchestra's former Principal Conductor Gerhard Markson, soprano Orla Boylan and pianist Finghin Collins, all three firm favourites with the orchestra and with audiences, make a welcome return to boost the celebrations.

The Friday Concert with Paul Herriott

Paul Herriott presents the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra live from the National Concert Hall in 'Lieutenant Kije'

Intermezzo - Lieutenant Kije

NCH lobby fixtures, Tomas Clancy and Raymond Blake, make short work of Prokofiev and confess to a taste for early Soviet cinema, though only when watched in the small hours via Youtube.

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.
