One of the delights of Dublin at this time of year is the National Symphony Orchestra’s summer series of concerts. For an hour on a Tuesday lunchtime, the music flows. It’s been my good fortune to have had the opportunity to present some of them, as they’re broadcast live on RTÉ Lyric FM.

This week the sequence finally resumed for its run through until August after a lengthy pandemic interruption. The NSO was in fine fettle under the English conductor Jonathan Bloxham, who drew a wonderfully dynamic performance from the players.
