Concert information

Discover the world of Hungarian composer Erno von Dohnányi - the missing link between Romantic Vienna and the fiery sounds of Bartók and Kodály. His first symphony is something of a passion for our Hungarian guest conductor Gergely Madaras; and its moody fin-de-siècle atmosphere offers a lush contrast to Tchaikovsky’s sunlit Violin Concerto - a work that can’t quite decide whether to sing or to dance, and ends up doing both in the most tuneful way imaginable.

Pre-Concert Talk, 6.45pm (free to ticket-holders): Conductor Gergely Madaras introduces some of the works in tonight's concert.

The concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
