AGONY AND THE ECSTASY A HEART-WRENCHING REQUIEM, A GARGANTUAN SYMPHONIC HYMN. Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto – a heart-wrenching requiem for the death of a young child, dedicated to ‘the memory of an angel’ – and Beethoven’s gargantuan symphonic hymn, with its ecstatic choral setting of Schiller’s Ode to Joy, are two monumental musical milestones whose astonishing intensity and awesome scale are without compare. Former Principal Conductor Gerhard Markson returns to lead virtuoso Dutch violinist Isabelle van Keulen, the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir, and a quartet of vocal talents in what is sure to be a night to remember.
