Aedín Gormley's Sunday Matinée Sunday 12 August 2018
Gustavo Dudamel conducts the LA Philharmonic in a performance of Schubert's 'Unfinished' Symphony No. 8 in our concert this afternoon and we'll hear recordings from The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, one of the USA’s most historic and pre-eminent international orchestras ahead of the its Bernstein Centenary Programme in the NCH in Dublin next week. Under the directorship of Marin Alsop (pictured), the first woman to head a major American orchestra, it has become a beacon of artistic excellence and has reached new heights of excellence and engagement with the local community.
Elspeth Hanson presents today, and will include a selection of music for your Sunday afternoon including extracts from Mahler's Das Knaben Wunderhorn performed by mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke with the L.A. Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.
