Inspiration can come from the most unexpected sources. On his visits to America in the 1890s, Antonín Dvořák discovered a new world of music that immediately began to enrich what he wrote. He injected the rich, exotic colours he heard in the songs and spirituals of America into his Ninth Symphony, creating a piece whose warmth of character and stringent optimism were like nothing heard from an orchestra before.

Tchaikovsky thought he was ‘all played out’ in the spring of 1878, until the young violinist Josef Kotek paid him a visit and prompted him to spawn his Violin Concerto – a scintillating journey through bravura, self-doubt and heartfelt rapture.
