RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra 2009-2010 Season

Friday 2 October, 8pm

Sibelius Finlandia
Sibelius Valse triste
Grieg Piano Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 6 'Pastoral'


Boris Giltburg piano
Kenneth Montgomery conductor

Following the success of his first visit, Boris Giltburg returns for the ever-popular Grieg concerto - ardent and spirited, with a spellbinding slow movement familiar from a classic Guinness TV ad. With Beethoven's marvellous vision of nature, the heroic and barnstorming Finlandia and the deeply elegiac Valse triste also on the bill, we're in for an invigorating evening.

Soundings: In conversation
Kenneth Montgomery with Senator David Norris, 7pm

Meet the players; meet each other

The RTÉ NSO players would like to meet the audience and we would like to offer you the opportunity to meet them and each other.

Come to The Carolan Room (beside the upstairs bar) during the interval at concerts on Fridays 11, 18 and 25 September and 2 October when a number of players will come straight from the stage to meet you.

Discounts available on wine and soft drinks. It's an open house!
