Opening the concert, a rare opportunity to hear Dukas's symphonic poem based on the story of an early Christian martyr.

Schumann and Mendelssohn were in awe of each other, and although both were brilliant musical fantasists, tonight's concert provides a contrast between the dreamlike, time-suspending romance of Schumann's concerto and Mendelssohn's neo-classical sparkle and lithe textures - what Schumann referred to as 'Mozart's second coming'.

Opening the concert, a rare opportunity to hear Dukas's symphonic poem based on the story of an early Christian martyr.
