Vanessa Benelli Mosell and Stacey Kent are the next two major international artists to feature in the RTÉ Concert Orchestra’s prestigious Signature Series.

On Thursday 14 September, star Italian pianist Vanessa Benelli Mosell – described by Pascal Rogé as ‘the most natural musical talent I have encountered in my entire life’ – makes her Irish début. She joins the RTÉ CO at the National Concert Hall for Rachmaninov’s famous second piano concerto and the first Irish performance of George Benjamin’s Duet.

On Wednesday 11 October, American jazz singer Stacey Kent – who Kazuo Ishiguro calls ‘a great jazz diva of our age’ – makes her RTÉ CO and NCH début with a programme ranging from jazz standards to bossa nova classics to more recent songs co-written by Ishiguro.
