The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS - MICHAEL DERVAN

It looks like a per­fectly or­di­nary con­cert from the RTÉ NSO. There are three works from the heart of the reper­toire: Strauss’s tone poem Don Juan, Mozart’s Clar­inet Con­certo and Shostakovich’s Tenth Sym­phony. The soloist is the orches­tra’s prin­ci­pal clar­inet­tist, John Fin­u­cane, and the con­duc­tor is Venezue­lan Rafael Pa­yare (above), who at the age of 32 who won the Malko Com­pe­ti­tion in Copen­hagen last May.

But it’s ac­tu­ally a con­cert with a dif­fer­ence – the orches­tra will in­clude some un­fa­mil­iar faces as the 10 young play­ers se­lected for the RTÉ NSO Men­tor­ing Scheme 2012 will take to the stage with their pro­fes­sional col­leagues.

This year’s line-up in­cludes two vi­o­lin­ists (Anne Manach and Cristina Ryan), a cel­list (Yseult Cooper Stock­dale), a flautist (Liane Bradley), a trum­peter (Eoghan Cooke), a tuba player (Stephen Crooks), a horn player (Ais­ling Deevy), two per­cus­sion­ists (Ro­nan Dikker and Brian Dungan), and a harpist (Claire O’Don­nell).
