The RTÉ Concert Orchestra invites you to an evening of glorious masterpieces to light up the month of January!
The exhilarating colour of Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture should banish any winter blues to start. Then for Gershwin’s thrilling F major piano concerto, fusing the worlds of classical, jazz and musical theatre, we welcome to centre stage leading Irish pianist Michael McHale.
A favourite among the late Romantic symphonies, Sibelius’s 5th Symphony has the lot – evocative, shimmering strings, a French horn theme that has been likened to the sun parting clouds and a sweeping, swelling, irresistibly stirring finale.
