RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra 2010-2011 Season
BY THE WATERS OF BABYLON
Friday 26 November, 8pm
at the National Concert Hall
Sibelius The Captive Queen, Op. 48 [15'] (Sung in Finnish)
Walton Belshazzar's Feast [36']
Nielsen Symphony No. 4, Op. 29 'The Inextinguishable' [36']
Intellectually and musically riveting, Principal Guest Conductor Hannu Lintu's programmes will be another highlight of the 2010-2011 season. Read Hannu's own thoughts on these concerts and Michael Dervan's interview with Hannu in The Irish Times, Thursday 25 November.
Walton's Belshazzar's Feast is an eclectic work for the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir to embrace, while Walton's debt to the influence of Sibelius establishes a connection with the opening work, the rarely performed Captive Queen. The first of three Lintu concerts, this evening also highlights the Nielsen presence in the season - beginning with 'The Inextinguishable'!
