In today's programme...
Popular orchestral works from Sibelius, one of the great late-Romantic composers.

Finlandia, with its joyful and triumphant hymn of celebration, the exotic and colourful Oriental Procession with all its eastern influences and the lyrical Karelia Suite.

The young baritone Gavan Ring, a semi-finalist in the 2010 Veronica Dunne International Singing Competition, makes his RTÉ Summer Lunchtime début singing popular baritone repertoire including the Count's aria from The Marriage of Figaro, and the very beautiful bel canto aria Ah! Per sempre io ti perdei from I Puritani.

Like Scandinavia? Continue the journey with the RTÉ NSO and Principal Guest Conductor Hannu Lintu in the 2010-2011 season (26 November, 14 January, 13 May).
