RTÉ Concert Orchestra
Thursday 30 January, 8pm
National Concert Hall
John Wilson conductor
'the orchestral medley of Tom and Jerry cartoon soundtracks...made a thrilling ride. Wow!' - The Financial Times
John Wilson makes his eagerly anticipated début as Principal Conductor of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
Hollywood Rhapsody is a celebration of instrumental Hollywood film scores that we haven't heard enough of, and a clever medley of theme songs from otherwise non-musical movies. This programme was a huge hit when the John Wilson Orchestra performed it at the 2013 BBC Proms and now Wilson and the RTÉ CO present it in Dublin for the first time.
The 20th Century Fox Fanfare provides a swaggering opening to an evening packed with amazing music from Robin Hood, Casablanca, Ben-Hur, Psycho, Citizen Kane and more, not least an exhilarating Tom and Jerry medley that raised the roof of the Royal Albert Hall.
