Prom 52: Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra

BBC A programme of orchestral showpieces as we welcome back the Budapest Festival Orchestra. 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.
