The young Hungarian baritone Gyula Nagy has been making a name for himself as an Opera Theatre Company 'Young Artist'. For his concert debut with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, he tackles three formidable and varied characters: Mozart's fickle and scheming Count Almaviva, Verdi's loyal but doomed Marquis de Posa and Borodin's heroic Prince Igor. Adding lustre to baritonal burnish are orchestral favourites by Suppé (the robustly romantic Poet and Peasant Overture), Puccini (Manon Lescaut's luscious Intermezzo), Shostakovich (The Gadfly's swooning Romance) and Tchaikovsky (the ever-delightful Waltz of the Flowers from The Nutcracker).
