Boléro

Wednesday April 10th, 8pm
National Concert Hall
RTÉ Concert Orchestra

John Wilson - conductor
Morgan Szymanski - guitar

The Adagio of Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez is for millions the sound of Spain. Heard in countless commercials and films, covered by musicians ranging from Miles Davis to Led Zeppelin, it's just one of the many instantly recognisable melodies on this Spanish menu.

Add in the dazzling orchestral colour of Chabrier's España and Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol, the Toreador music from Carmen, the exhilarating final dance from Falla's The Three-Cornered Hat and Ravel's hypnotic, sensuous Boléro and you have the ultimate musical taste of Spain.

Packed with some of the best-loved music ever composed, showing both guitar playing and orchestral virtuosity at their best, this evening is perfect for a first-timer as well as a classical music fan!

Tickets: €11 - €38 (conc. €10 - €35)
Booking: nch.ie or 01 417 0000 (no booking fee)
