RTÉ NSO Summer Music Festival 2013

Tuesday 2 July 2013, 1.05pm, National Concert Hall
'LUNCHTIME JEWELS' WITH THE RTÉ NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Rossini The Barber of Seville Overture
Mozart Porgi, amor... (The Marriage of Figaro)

Opera's most glittering vocal and orchestral gems promise to sparkle with even greater lustre in summer sunshine, the Overture to Rossini's comic masterpiece The Barber of Seville and Gounod's hypnotic Jewel Song framing an afternoon of high emotions (Mozart's yearning Porgi amor, Charpentier's heartfelt Depuis le jour), forceful drama (resplendent marches by Berlioz and Mendelssohn), with just a hint of autumn encroaching in Richard Strauss's haunting September and tempestuous Cäcilie.
