Now to end the year-long celebrations, they are coming back to Ireland to present a one-night-only concert here at the National Concert Hall which will bring together exceptional Irish and International artists under the aegis of timeless music, in a programme featuring Ludwig van Beethoven’s 5th Symphony N. 5 in C minor Op.67 and Gioachino Rossini’s Stabat Mater in four voices for choir and orchestra.
