RTÉ Concert Orchestra     
Conductor: Jonathan Bloxham
Soloist: Vanessa Benelli Mosell

Star Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell erupted onto the scene as an 11-year-old performing with the legendary Pascal Rogé, who described her as ‘the most natural musical talent I have encountered in my entire life’.

Benelli Mosell is known both for passionate performances of the classics of the repertoire and for her championing of the newest composers, so it’s fitting that her Irish début features Rachmaninov’s famous second piano concerto and the first Irish performance of George Benjamin’s Duet.

Completing the programme, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra takes centre stage for two Russian orchestral favourites: Night on Bald Mountain and Borodin’s 2nd Symphony.

‘Powerful, emotional, romantic and dramatic, she sweeps us along in a dazzling display of assured technique.”
