Stacey Kent
RTÉ Concert Orchestra

Conductor : Richard Balcombe

Stacey Kent, Grammy award winning American Jazz singer in her National Concert Hall debut joins the RTÉ Concert Orchestra for a night of jazz standards, bossa nova classics and more recent songs co-written by Kazuo Ishiguro.

“Stacey’s singing never lets us forget these songs are about people. Her protagonists come to life so fully in her voice, you sometimes have to remind yourself the CD has no visuals. She has, in fact, much in common with today’s finest screen actors who, assured of the camera’s ability to pick out detail, portray complex shades of personality, motive and feeling through subtle adjustments of face and posture….here’s a great jazz diva of our age.” – Kazuo Ishiguro,
