RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra at New Music Dublin 2017

Totentanz Irish premiere with Thomas Adès conducting

The world premiere of Thomas Adès Totentanz in 2013, with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and soloists Christianne Stotijin and Simon Keenlyside, was described as “an immense achievement…a cultural event of the first magnitude.” (The Telegraph), and “wonderfully compelling, with …the soloists giving their roles an almost operatic vividness.” (The Guardian).

The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra is proud to present the Irish premiere of this epic vocal masterpiece, with Thomas Adès conducting, as part of New Music Dublin on Friday 3 March at the National Concert Hall.
