Synopsis: The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra proudly opens the Embassy of Mexico in Ireland’s 2015 programme to celebrate Ireland’s long and warm relationship with Mexico and the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between our two countries. In her first visit to Ireland, esteemed Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra will conduct a programme including works by Irish and Mexican composers. The intense beauty of Frederick May’s Sunlight and Shadow perfectly contrasts the captivating use of Mexican folk tunes in Carlos Chávez’s Second Symphony and the Brazilian influences in Ney Rosauro’s rhythmically hypnotic Marimba Concerto. Stravinsky’s multi-coloured Petrushkais a fantastical blend of folk tale and fairground.
