    Friday 24th October
    We're live from the NCH, Dublin, as trombonist extraordinaire Christian Lindberg returns for an evening of passion and romance. Sibelius’ rousing Karelia Suite is a colourful picture-postcard from the heartland of Finnish folklore, Tchaikovsky’s storm-driven Fifth Symphony a baring of the Russian soul. And for sheer showmanship, Lindberg plays, recites and conducts his own brilliantly quirky Helikon Wasp.
