The Friday Concert with Paul Herriott

Tonight we present a special concert recorded in Beijing in July featuring the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of José Serebrier

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.
