Dublin International Piano Competition prize winner and NCH 'Rising Star' Nadene Fiorentini makes her much-anticipated debut with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in Mendelssohn's youthful, free-flowing, vibrantly virtuosic First Piano Concerto. The Overture to Mozart's opera The Abduction from the Seraglio, set in a harem, bristles with a delightful invention that puts the Emperor Joseph II's famous complaint - 'Too many notes!' - to shame; three of Brahms' vivacious Hungarian Dances rhapsodise the virtues of traditional folk music; and the ever-exquisite Blue Danube Waltz takes us from Hungary liltingly back to Mozart's Vienna.
