LUNCHTIME CONCERT WITH RTE CONCERT ORCHESTRA
What a joy it was to work with the musicians of the RTE Concert Orchestra for a lunchtime concert featuring my very favourite opera overtures Don Giovanni, and Der Freischuetz (with that amazing introduction brilliantly played by RTE CO horn section!!) Great to also work with young cellist Killian White on the Tchaikovsky Roccoco Variations. Killian is beginning his very own Berlin adventure in September.
It was lovely to be able to programme Arthur Duff's Meath Pastorale, and round things off with Tchaikovsky's sparkling Polonaise from Eugene Onegin.
This concert was a highlight for me, and a reminder of just how excellent this group of musicians are - we are lucky to have them in this country.
I even got my very first piece of fan mail from a delighted audience member a week after the concert! Brilliant!!!
