CLASS Ra­dio­head

3Arena, Dublin. 8pm. ¤61.45 (sold out) tick­et­mas­ter.ie Over 30 years after they formed in Ox­ford, Ra­dio­head are as vi­tal as ever. This year marks the 20th an­niver­sary of the re­lease of their cross­over (third) al­bum, OK Com­puter, which is jus­ti­fi­ably ac­claimed as a rock mu­sic land­mark. De­spite glitches along the way (2000’s Kid A and 2001’s Am­ne­siac for­sake melodies in favour of ex­per­i­ments. 2011’s King of Limbs is off-kil­ter loops and fit­ful pro­gram­ming), the band’s 2016 al­bum, Moon Shaped Pool, was praised to the hilt for a re­turn to (rel­a­tively) tra­di­tional song struc­ture. What­ever al­bum does or doesn’t get you, they re­main a class, idio­syn­cratic act. Spe­cial guests are Is­raeli com­poser Shye Ben Tzur and In­dian brass en­sem­ble, the Ra­jasthan Ex­press. There’s a Ra­dio­head con­nec­tion here, in that Jonny Green­wood pro­duced 2015 al­bum, Ju­nun.

NCH, Dublin 1.05pm. ¤12. nch.ie This week’s RTÉ Na­tional Sym­phony Orches­tra lunchtime con­cert gets an in­jec­tion of an un­usual sort. The multi-award-win­ning Cork vi­o­lin­ist Mairéad Hickey is the day’s soloist, and as well as per­form­ing Chaus­son’s Poème, writ­ten for the great Eugène Ysaÿe, she’s also go­ing to play a tra­di­tional Ir­ish mu­sic set. Gavin Maloney con­ducts, and the pro­gramme also in­cludes Beethoven’s Leonore No. 3 Over­ture, Men­delssohn’s Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream Over­ture (writ­ten when the com­poser was 17, four years younger than Hickey) and William Kroll’s Banjo and Fid­dle in an or­ches­tra­tion by Ralph Wilkin­son.

CLAS­SI­CAL Mighty Fortress

Var­i­ous Dublin venues, un­til Sun­day. pipeworks.ie The Pipeworks Fes­ti­val cel­e­brates the 500th an­niver­sary of the Ref­or­ma­tion and “one of its most en­dur­ing gifts to mu­si­cal cul­ture — the Lutheran chorale”. The Mighty Fortress ti­tle comes from the chorale known in Ger­man as Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, and the main fes­ti­val pro­grammes have all been give ex­plana­tory ti­tles – the Lutheran Cas­tle (City Hall, Tues­day), Chorale Hero­ics (St Patrick’s Cathe­dral, Wed­nes­day), Doc­trine and Di­dac­tics (White­friar Street Church, Thurs­day), Sym­phonic Chorale (NCH, Fri­day), In­spi­ra­tions and Rev­e­la­tions (Christ Church Cathe­dral, Satur­day) and Chorale Remix (St Michael’s Church, Dún Laoghaire, Sun­day, fea­tur­ing in­ter­lude-im­pro­vi­sa­tions by mem­bers of the Kirkos En­sem­ble and Tom Lane’s spe­cially com­mis­sioned Ein feste Burg). Nan Golden, Sweet Blood Call; Vivienne Dick, 93% STAR­DUST Ir­ish Mu­seum of Modern Art, Kil­main­ham, Dublin Un­til Oc­to­ber 15 imma.ie Friends for many years, this is the first time Nan Goldin and Vivienne Dick show side by side. Goldin is best known for her frank, in­for­mal au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal pho­to­graphs chron­i­cling the lives of her­self, fam­ily and friends from the 1970s on, work that helped shape a whole genre of con­tem­po­rary photography. Done­gal-born, Dick teaches film­mak­ing at GMIT and is highly re­garded for her ex­per­i­men­tal and doc­u­men­tary films, one strand of which em­bod­ies the punk No Wave move­ment in late 1970s New York. Since re­turn­ing to Ire­land in 1982 she has built up an ex­cep­tion­ally rich body of work. Her lat­est film, Au­gen­blick, pre­mieres as part of this show.
