The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra season begins with a new piece by talented young Irish composer, Ed Bennett, and two masterpieces exalting the adventure and opportunity of new beginnings.

Rachmaninov’s optimistic Second Piano Concerto boasts one soaringly beautiful melody after another while Stravinsky’s Petrushka is a bright, brash, bold portrait of a puppet suddenly brought to life.
