Dance drives to the very end of our programme; Berlioz's elegant, cut-glass orchestration of Weber's Invitation to the Dance ushers in Beethoven's "apotheosis of the dance". That description of Beethoven's uplifting Seventh Symphony was coined by Wagner whose overture to his early opera Rienzi opens the programme. The orchestra is joined by virtuoso horn player Stefan Dohr for Mozart's sparkling Third Horn Concerto.
