The Elements of Genius: Kreisler & McCormack 
Join tenor Gavan Ring and violinist Patrick Rafter, two of the brightest stars in Irish classical music, for a unique evening celebrating the collaborations of the great Irish tenor John McCormack and the Austrian-American virtuoso violinist Fritz Kreisler.
Along with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and conductor Anna Sułkowska-Migoń, Patrick and Gavan present a memorable concert inspired by these great musicians which will include sensational duos including Handel’s Ombra mai fu and Massenet’s Élégie, alongside some of Kreisler’s beloved works for violin and romantic opera and song including Gounod’s Salut! demeure chaste et pure and Leoncavallo’s Mattinata.
The Polish-born Anna Sułkowska-Migoń is being described by Le Monde as ‘having the energetic allure of a mini-Mirga Grazynité-Tyla’ and hailed by Le Devoir as  ‘the new name to remember in the expanding galaxy of female conductors’. Awards include first prize at the La Maestra conducting competition in Paris in 2022 and recently the Neeme Järvi Prize at the Gstaad Conducting Academy.
