Conductor: Robert Houlihan
Soloist: Josu de Solaun
This marvellous programme showcases the breadth of Tchaikovsky’s genius. The Spanish sensation Josu de Solaun makes his RTÉ Concert Orchestra début with Tchaikovsky’s 1st Piano Concerto – an ideal match given his combination of virtuosity and expressiveness. The composer’s genius for melody also infuses the rest of the music on the night, which will end with a bang with the 1812 Overture.
“De Solaun lets expression lead at all times, no matter how intense the virtuosity. There’s a bouncy vitality to his playing, a warm and intimate approach to phrasing and a beautifully mellow tone.” BBC Music Magazine
