Friday January 17th - Dvorak's Requiem

Aedín Gormley presents a concert live from the National Concert Hall, Dublin. Patrik Ringborg conducts the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir and soloists including Patrik Ringborg and Patricia Bardon (photo Frances Marshall), in a performance of Dvorak's Requiem. Conceived for the concert hall rather than the church, Dvorák's Requiem is that rarest of things: a Mass for the dead that celebrates life.
