Read Hannu's thoughts on the works he will conduct in his first season as Principal Guest Conductor of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. More...and Michael Dervan's interview with Hannu in The Irish Times, Thursday 25 November 2010.
Hannu Lintu celebrates the 200th anniversary of Liszt's birth with the symphonic poem Orpheus and the dazzling first piano concerto played by Peter Jablonski. Complemented by Scriabin's beautiful Piano Concerto, these two concerti offer radically different visions of the future.
In Stravinsky's scorching Symphony in Three Movements, his first major work after emigrating to America, we hear his powerful response to the Second World War.
