Peter Tuite (left), one of the most in­di­vid­ual of Ir­ish pi­anists, makes his first sub­scrip­tion con­cert ap­pear­ance with the RTÉ Na­tional Sym­phony Orches­tra. He will play early Beethoven, the First Pi­ano Con­certo, in a pro­gramme that then moves on to con­cen­trate on un­fin­ished works from late in their com­posers’ ca­reers - the Ada­gio from Mahler’s Tenth Sym­phony, and what can safely be said to be the most fa­mous in­com­plete sym­phony of all: Schu­bert’s Un­fin­ished. Full, four-move­ment per­form­ing ver­sions of both works have been made over the years by var­i­ous hands. But Ger­hard Markson is keep­ing things sim­ple, and will con­duct only what the com­posers them­selves com­pleted.
