NSO Season

National Symphony Orchestra Season

Following a near sold-out season this year, the cherished and much-loved National Symphony Orchestra present a stellar round-up of international and Irish conductors and soloists to perform from cellist Steven Isserlis playing Haydn’s Cello Concerto to American conductor Leonard Slatkin leading his 80th birthday celebration in which he conducts the world premiere of his son Daniel Slatkin’s new work Voyager 130. Other great musicians featuring throughout the NSO season include pianists Hugh Tinney playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, Lise de la Salle playing Rachmaninov’s much-loved Piano Concerto 2 and Jonathan Biss playing Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1; Camille Thomas playing Dvořák’s Cello Concerto and violinist Simone Lamsma plays Brahms’s Violin Concerto, all popular favourites with audiences the world over. Choral fans will be treated to Haydn’s great oratorio The Creation with the National Symphony Chorus (NSC) and guests as well as Stanford’s Requiem, Arvo Pärt’s Berliner Messe, Mozart’s Requiem, and the Irish premiere of James MacMillan’s St. John’s Passion with NSC and Chamber Choir Ireland. 
 
The NSO season also pays homage to great composers with special anniversaries and celebrations allowing audiences to revel in the performance of their most beloved works. Puccini’s 100th Anniversary will be marked with a performance of his Messa di Gloria with guest soloists; Stanford’s 100th  Anniversary continues with a performance of his Requiem with the National Symphony Chorus (NSC), under the direction of David Young; Bruckner’s 200th anniversary is marked with a performance of his 7th Symphony by the NSO; Austrian composer Johann Strauss 11’s 200th Anniversary is celebrated in a special New Year’s Day concert featuring some of his best-known works from Die Fledermaus, the Thunder and Lightning Polka and more with guest artists; Shostakovich’s 50th Anniversary is celebrated with his Symphony No. 7 performed by the NSO under conductor Diego Matheuz (17 Jan. ‘25); the 150th Anniversary of Ravel’s birth will be celebrated with an all-ravel programme featuring the Bolero, Shéhérazade and more performed by the NSO with Julie Boulianne, soprano and Lionel Lhote, baritone as guests led by Italian conductor Speranza Scappucci.
