RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra Lunchtime Concerts
RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
A Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture
Henry VIII: Three Dances
Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg
Karen Ní Bhroin, currently Conductor in Training with the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir, makes her RTÉ NSO debut in a programme celebrating the delights of summer at its height. Delius paints a wistful portrait of a languid Summer Evening, Mendelssohn brilliantly conjures a world of make-believe, fantasy and romance and German offer a delightfully zesty display of mock-Tudor bravura. The glowing Wagner Prelude is one of the great and glorious orchestral showpieces.
