Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

The intoxicating energy of their performances makes any appearance by Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra a highlight of the season. In the first of their two Proms together, they pair Mahler’s best-loved symphony – the vivacious Fourth, with its jingling sleighbells and child’s-eye vision of heaven – with two works exploring the unusual relationship between strings and percussion: Bartók’s dynamic Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta and Enescu’s Prélude à l’unisson, with its slow-build tension.
