This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 11th September at 2pm

The Budapest Festival Orchestra returns to the Proms with a programme of orchestral showpieces. Sparkling Strauss dances are matched by a selection of Brahms's colourful Hungarian Dances, and Kodály's sweeping Dances of Galánta are balanced by the crisp Classical textures of Mozart's March in D major. At the centre is Schubert's 'Unfinished' Symphony, with its mood-swings and elusive harmonies.
