London Philharmonic Orchestra

When the London Philharmonic Society asked Antonín Dvořák for a new symphony in 1884, the composer knew he had to deliver something special. In the resulting Seventh, the doubts and frustrations Dvořák experienced as a composer are defeated by music of compelling argument, triumphing over its own nervous energy in the final bars with a glorious plunge into the brightness of D major. Before it come two firm orchestral favourites: the aching poise and flowing melody of Grieg’s Piano Concerto and Kodály’s rumbustious, colourful dances on themes from the small Slovakian town of Galánta.
