RTÉ NSO/Håkan Har­den­berger NCH, Dublin 7.30pm ¤15-¤35/¤13-¤31 nch.ie The first cel­e­brated Nordic brass player to visit Dublin this week is Swedish trum­peter and con­duc­tor Håkan Har­den­berger, mak­ing his third ap­pear­ance in four years with the RTÉ NSO. This time, how­ever, he won’t be play­ing the trum­pet, although his pro­gramme is still likely to be brassy enough for all tastes. He opens with Co­p­land’s Fan­fare

for the Com­mon Man and ends with Janacek’s brass­ily spec­tac­u­lar Sin­foni­etta. In be­tween, the pi­ano soloist in Stravin­sky’s 1929 Capric­cio is fel­low-Swede Roland Pön­ti­nen, and there are also two Ada­gios for strings only, by Sa­muel Bar­ber and Lars-Erik Lars­son. Michael Dervan
