A VIENNESE PROM!

Irish Chamber Orchestra

Jochen Rieder  Conductor

Gloria Rehm  Soprano 

Travel back in time to the glory days of 19th century Vienna with a magical mix of music and song.  A Vienna awash with opulent parties and glittering ballrooms filled with dancers whirling deliriously, revelling to a new phenomenon called the waltz.  While Josef Lanner transformed the peasant dance, the Strauss family soon captured a monopoly on both waltz and polka, feeding the insatiable demand of Vienna’s enthusiasm.

Combining the elegance of Vienna with the rousing sound of the Irish Chamber Orchestra, eminent German conductor, Jochen Rieder takes the baton for this sumptuous extravaganza.  Rieder regularly conducts the great Jonas Kaufmann, so his appearance in Limerick’s Milk Market is much anticipated. The ICO will be joined by mesmerizing soprano, Gloria Rehm, for a delectable mix of Viennese waltzes, polkas and song which are as fresh today as they were, then.

Waltzes will feature dancers from Ballet Ireland in glorious costumes of the period. From The Blue Danube to Tales from the Vienna Woods to Die Fledermaus, there is something here for everyone!
