The big­gest is on to­mor­row af­ter­noon, when St Ann’s Church is the venue for pre­sen­ta­tions; per­for­mances of works from the 1970s, as well as a be­lated pre­miere of Deane’s First String Quar­tet of 1981; and a recorded ex­cerpt from his opera The Alma Fetish, which will re­ceive its con­cert pre­miere at the Na­tional Con­cert Hall on Septem­ber 17th.

Deane is also the fo­cus of Tues­day’s RTÉ NSO Hori­zons lunchtime con­cert, when Gavin Maloney will con­duct the com­poser’s self-cho­sen pro­gramme – Carl Rug­gles’s Por­tals pre­ced­ing his own Epit­o­mes and Rip­ieno. There’s also a pub­lic in­ter­view with Evonne Fer­gu­son be­fore the con­cert, at 12.30pm.

Deane also features in one of the pro­grammes of Water­ford New Mu­sic Week, where the RTÉ Van­brugh Quar­tet will play his Em­bers of 1973, the piece of which he is most proud (and which also features in Satur­day’s of­fer­ings). In Water­ford it will be heard in a pro­gramme which treats Mozart’s Quar­tet in A, K464 (1785), and Brit­ten’s Sec­ond Quar­tet (1945) as new mu­sic, and also in­cludes Deirdre McKay’s gen­uinely new Mr Shah stares to the heavens, com­mis­sioned by Sligo’s Con Brio Mu­sic Se­ries, and pre­miered just last month.
