Meet Franz Schmidt, last of the Austrian Romantics. As storm clouds gathered over his native Austria, Schmidt poured a lifetime of heartbreak into his beautiful Fourth Symphony; music of profound emotion, glorious melody and some of the most tender poetry in 20th century music. Prize-winning 21-year-old virtuoso Daniil Trifonov is the perfect soloist for Chopin's youthful Second Concerto. Dvorak's colourful and exuberant overture starts the evening.
