RTÉ NSO 2010 Mentoring Scheme for Advanced Young Musicians
Nine of Ireland's leading young instrumental students, ranging in age from 20 to 23 and from counties Dublin, Cork, Kilkenny and Donegal, will join the RTÉ NSO in performance as part the RTÉ NSO's newly developed Mentoring Scheme for Advanced Young Musicians. Read more on this.
Disarmingly simple, and yet with creative room for the virtuosity of Johannes Moser, who so impressed in his performance in 2009, Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme is a wonderfully melodic work.
Beginning the Italianate theme, Respighi's shimmering early-morning landscapes and sensuous Mediterranean sunsets frame bursts of orchestral brilliance.
Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra remains one of the towering achievements of twentieth-century repertoire, immensely important for creating a world of instrumental possibilities.
