RTÉ NCH, NSO/ALAN Dublin Tonight BURIB­AYEV 8pm ¤10-¤35 01-4170000 ICO/GÁ­BOR TAKÁCS-NAGY RDS, Dublin To­mor­row 8pm ¤18, ¤20 0818-719300 FINGHIN COLLINS (PI­ANO), RTÉ NSO/JONATHAN CO­HEN NCH, Dublin Sun 3.30pm ¤10-¤35 01-4170000 Alan Burib­ayev con­ducts the NSO in the great­est and most pop­u­lar of 19th-cen­tury cello con­cer­tos, Dvo­rak’s in B mi­nor, with Al­ban Ger­hardt as soloist. He cou­ples it with Rach­mani­nov’s Third Sym­phony, which hasn’t been heard in Dublin for ten years.

The Ir­ish Cham­ber Orches­tra’s RDS pro­gramme in­cludes a fa­mous sym­phony (Haydn’s No 44, nick­named the Mourn­ing), an ob­scure one (the 16-year old Mozart’s No 15), and Rus­sian com­poser Ro­dion Shchedrin’s most best-known piece, his in­ge­niously colour­ful re­work­ing for strings and per­cus­sion of mu­sic from Bizet’s Car­men.

Finghin Collins con­tin­ues his ex­plo­ration of Beethoven’s works for pi­ano and orches­tra with the fa­mil­iar First Pi­ano Con­certo and the to­tal odd­ity that is the com­poser’s ar­range­ment of his own Vi­o­lin Con­certo, re­mark­able for the new ca­denza he wrote, which features a part for tim­pani.
