RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra – St Patrick’s Day Celebration

NCH, Sunday 17th March 2019

RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra with Moxie and Niall Vallely concertina. The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra presents a St Patrick's Day Celebration with a difference, performing for the first time with Moxie – hailed by The Irish Times as a ‘high octane band' – and with virtuoso concertina player Niall Vallely, in the world premiere of his Concerto for Concertina and Orchestra. Also on the programme, Seán Ó Riada's much-loved Mise Éire, with its dramatic and imaginative combination of original music with traditional airs and marches. David Brophy conducts.

Moxie, who describe themselves as ‘5 young lads with folk and traditional backbones', are a the forefront of new music from Ireland, breaking new ground with their distinct brand of Irish music heavily influenced by Electro, Jazz, House, Rock and World music.

Niall Vallely needs no introduction as a concertina player. His “technical mastery and genius for improvisation are matched by apparently inexhaustible creative reserves”, says the Irish Times. He's not stranger to composition either. It has been a focus for him over the past 10 years. This new concerto is, as far as he is aware, ‘the first piece of its kind composed for the type of concertina we play in Ireland, the Anglo-German or Anglo-chromatic system concertina.'
