About This Event

When the London Philharmonic Society asked Dvořák for a new symphony in 1884, the composer knew he had to deliver something special. In the resulting Seventh, the doubts and frustrations Dvořák experienced as a composer are defeated by music that triumphs compellingly over its own nervous energy, bursting into radiant brightness in its final bars.

Tonight, Dvořák’s most fascinating symphony is heard after Malcolm Hayes’s new concerto, a work inspired by the mood and atmosphere of the Outer Hebrides, and performed by former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Tai Murray. Bartók’s colourful Dance Suite, featuring Hungarian and Arabic folk melodies, opens the concert.
