RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra: Summer Lunchtime Series

  • National Concert Hall Earlsfort Terrace Dublin, Dublin Ireland (map)

RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra 
Ciaran McAuley conductor
Máire Carroll piano

HECTOR BERLIOZ Beatrice and Benedict Overture
CÉSAR FRANCK Symphonic Variations

The attractive, love-lit Overture to Berlioz’s late Shakespearean comedy Beatrice and Benedict provides the perfect appetiser for Franck’s mighty Symphonic Variations, a work of challenging virtuosic demands for both soloist – 2012 RDS Music Bursary recipient Máire Carroll – and conductor: the Malaysian Philharmonic’s rising star Ciarán McAuley. Ravel’s charming and colourful ballet Mother Goose brings an array of fairy-tale characters vividly to life.

This concert is being broadcast live on RTÉ lyric fm, 96-99fm within Niall Carroll's Classical Daytime  (10am -2 pm)

Presented by RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
