KODÁLY Dances of Galanta

SCHUMANN Piano Concerto in A Minor Op.54

SCRIABIN Symphony No. 2 in C Minor Op.29

Our season finale opens with another work highly influenced by its composer’s homeland. Zoltan Kodály was commissioned to celebrate the Budapest Philharmonic Society’s 80th anniversary in 1933, writing a highly evocative piece based on folk tunes from his native Galanta, now part of Slovakia.

Martin Roscoe plays Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, completed in 1854 and first performed the following year by Clara Schumann, the composer’s wife. The concerto may have influenced Grieg and Rachmaninov, whose piano concerti were both written in A minor.

Alexander Scriabin’s Second Symphony was written in 1901 and premiered in St Petersburg the following year. Heavily influenced by Tchaikovsky, Strauss and Wagner, it is very conventional in its structure – a brilliant work for a large symphony orchestra and a fitting conclusion to an exciting season.
