Great spring season ahead
Two terrific guests in January get the year off to a fine start: one of the world's most glamorous operatic stars Danielle de Niese and Bond composer David Arnold. Declan O'Rourke joins the RTÉ CO for concerts in Limerick, Galway and Dublin. John Wilson conducts a Gershwin celebration and three Essential Classics - an all-Mozart night including his Symphony No. 40, the Enigma Variations and Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto and Ravel's G major piano concerto, the Tallis Fantasia and An American in Paris. Emmy-nominated movie maestro Richard Kaufman salutes Heroes in Hollywood and there will be dancing in the aisles at Disco Inferno!
