RTÉ NSO regional tour with Elizabeth Cooney
RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
Elizabeth Cooney violin
Vladimir Altschuler conductor
Smetana 'The Moldau' from Má vlast
Dvorák Violin Concerto in A minor
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 in B minor 'Pathétique'
'I have put my whole soul into this work'
Tchaikovsky's Symphonie Pathétique is music of extraordinary intensity, full of power, poetry and pathos, ending in profound despair.
Smetana's richly melodic 'The Moldau' (or 'Vltava') is a portrait of a tumbling river. Elizabeth Cooney, one of the finest young Irish violinists, embraces the fantasy and spontaneous lyricism of Dvorák's Violin Concerto.
