The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra presents its Summer Evening Series at the National Concert Hall.
Raymond Deane’s Samara (2005) demonstrates this composer’s exceptional ability to create a musical response to the imagery of a natural phenomenon, the title being a reference to the winged seed of certain trees, disseminated by the wind.
Samara is the perfect companion piece for Sibelius’s magisterial Seventh Symphony, which compresses epic sweep and Parnassian grandeur into a concentrated form, surging with all the vitality and urgency of a river in gathering flood.
And what better way to conclude the RTÉ NSO’s series of Beethoven piano concertos than with the ‘spellbinding’ Hugh Tinney at the keyboard for the mighty Emperor?
On the programme:
DEANE – Samara (11’) RTÉ commission
SIBELIUS – Symphony No. 7 (21’)
BEETHOVEN – Piano Concerto No. 5, The Emperor (38’)
RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
Gavin Maloney conductor
