Here’s the RTÉ Concert Orchestra performing Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man in Terminal 2, Dublin Airport in 2012...
They play it in a more conventional setting on Wednesday 16 January, when it’s is one of the favourites in the Classical Elation concert at the National Concert Hall.
The extraordinary German pianist Joseph Moog is Gramophone’s Young Artist of the Year 2015 – and as they say ‘already among the most brilliant of pianists’. He joins the orchestra for the first time to play Gershwin’s incomparable Rhapsody in Blue.
An evening packed with fantastic music ranges from Elgar’s Nimrod to Adams’ Short Ride in a Fast Machine, there’s music by Bizet and Stravinsky, and for the big finish, the hypnotic build and thrilling climax of Ravel’s Boléro.
Classical Elation, featuring the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and conductor Stephen Bell, Wednesday 16 January, National Concert Hall, Dublin - more details here.
