LON­DON SYM­PHONY ORCHES­TRA/ VALERY GERGIEV NCH, Dublin Fri 8pm 155-195 01-4170000

Valery Gergiev (left), who be­came prin­ci­pal con­duc­tor of the Lon­don Sym­phony Orches­tra 15 months ago, has been stir­ring up a storm with the Mahler sym­phony cy­cle that dom­i­nates his Lon­don pro­grammes. For his first Dublin ap­pear­ance with the LSO, he is fo­cus­ing on Rus­sian fare. Ex­pect some thun­der and light­ning, too, in Tchaikovsky’s Pathé­tique Sym­phony and Stravin­sky’s Petrushka – in the lav­ish 1911 or­ches­tra­tion – at the Na­tional Con­cert Hall on Fri­day.
