Works by Edward Gregson for symphonic brass and percussion, and choral works composed for the Office of Compline ranging from Tallis to Tormis

Sunday July 19th

Mahler said that 'a symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything.' He applied this dictum to his own seventh symphony which includes cowbells and whips, a glockenspiel and mandolin, and tonight we hear a new recording performed by the Minnesota Orchestra under Osmo Vänskä. We’ll also explore the music of Francis Pott, who composes works with a personal harmonic style, as the Commotio chamber choir perform world premiere recordings.


Sunday July 26th

Tonight we hear star mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton perform songs from her new album that celebrates powerful, exceptional women. Joined by composer Jake Heggie at the piano, we'll hear his musical portraits of remarkable First Ladies, iconic sculptures and the demon Brittomara. We'll also hear pianist Yeol Eum Son performing Schumann in a new recording of his 'unplayable' Fantasy in C. (Jamie Barton - photo BreeAnne Clowdus)

Watch - RTÉ Concert Orchestra perform Gerald Barry and Julia Wolfe with Bang on a Can

The RTÉ Concert Orchestra conducted by Ilan Volkov performs Gerald Barry's Viola Concerto with the violist for whom it was written, Lawrence Power. A commission by Britten Sinfonia and RTÉ, it was recorded live at New Music Dublin 2020. We’ll also hear Julia Wolfe’s Flower Power composed for orchestra and the eclectic Bang on a Can All-Stars, a work inspired by a radical revolutionary moment - the late 1960's - a time when experimental ideas and questions permeated all parts of the political, social, and artistic landscapes.


Watch - Cleary, O'Leary and Guðmundsson with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra

Watch and listen below to diverse music by Irish and Icelandic composers, performed by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and recorded live in the National Concert Hall at New Music Dublin 2020.

Siobhán Cleary's Hum! is a musical theatre piece for two actors and string orchestra, a work of humour, conflict and tragedy with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ryan McAdams acting as greek chorus. They're all joined by the Ligeti Quartet for the world premiere of Jane O'Leary's Triptych in which four solo instruments act as a unit, layered with the incredibly soft sounds of the orchestra. And we'll hear Hugi Guðmundsson Box, a concerto for accordion, symphony orchestra and barrel organ performed with soloist Andreas Borregaard and conducted by Daniel Bjarnsson.
