A summer bonanza featuring bravura orchestral showpieces and popular songs as heard on RTÉ lyric fm.

Glinka’s colourful Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture and Tchaikovsky’s thrilling 1812 Overture frame an evening of high drama and rich emotions. “Musically spectacular” (Irish Theatre Magazine) soprano Sinéad Campbell-Wallace sings Schubert’s melodically inspired An die Musik and Richard Strauss’s effusive Frühling. Violinist Helena Wood and cellist Martin Johnson join forces for Saint-Saens’ impassioned La muse et le poète, with Charles William’s breathless Devil’s Galop and the tumultuous grand guignol of Saint-Saens’ Danse macabre adding their own poetry and spectacle.
