Insights - Pre-concert talks


Insights is a series of pre-concert talks given by respected figures in Irish music education and performance, and is linked to the International Concert Series. Taking a thematic approach, each talk uses the repertoire and performers as a departure point from which to explore musical themes that will have much to offer anyone with an interest in enhancing the concert experience, or expanding their understanding of classical music in general.

All talks are from 6:45-7:30pm unless otherwise advertised.

Pre-concert Talk with Mia Cooper ahead of Maxim Vengerov performance with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra

Friday 7th April, 6.45pm

In this talk, Mia Cooper, leader of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, will discuss Vengerov’s amazing career as a real superstar of the violin. She will also look at the difficult birth of the Sibelius violin concerto, and how the version (1904) that he will be playing has to be sanctioned by the Sibelius estate and he is only one of a handful of violinists permitted to play it.
