The RTÉ Na­tional Sym­phony Orches­tra’s mostly Nordic pro­gramme brings mu­si­cal per­spec­tives from Fin­land (Si­belius’s Fin­lan­dia and Swan of Tuonela), Nor­way (Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite No. 1) and Den­mark (a Good­night Polka, Cham­pagne Galop and Copen­hagen Steam Rail­way Galop by Hans Chris­tian Lum­bye, a north­ern chal­lenger to the pop­u­lar dances writ­ten by mem­bers of the Strauss fam­ily in Vi­enna). Added to this is a Ger­man per­spec­tive on Scot­land through Max Bruch’s Scot­tish Fan­tasy, where the vi­olin soloist is Gio­vanni Guzzo (re­plac­ing the ad­ver­tised soloist, the orches­tra’s co-leader Elaine Clark). Hold­ing ev­ery­thing to­gether is the Hun­gar­ian con­duc­tor Gergely Madaras.
