The programme
A musical fairytale based on Arabian Nights, Rimsky-Korsakov's story-spinning Scheherazade is perfect for the run-up to Christmas, both for younger and season audiences.

An opportunity also to hear Glazunov's rarely-performed Violin Concerto, a piece of pure quicksilver with a wonderful sequence of melodies that pose a real challenge to the soloist - one we eagerly await!

The well-known suite of six movements from Prokofiev's opera, The Love for Three Oranges, provides the perfect opening.

Soundings 7pm | In Conversation
Ilya Gringolts, violinist, with RTÉ NSO Co-Leader, Elaine Clark.
