A concert of beguilingly atmospheric works kicks off with one of the most recognisable symphonic openings ever composed. Equal parts drama and serenity, Schubert’s Eighth Symphony is his best-known, but also his most mysterious. Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony is unashamedly buoyant and uplifting, yet sweetly reflective, and filled with the most delightful musical wanderings.

The concert is available to view on demand for 30 days after the orginal performance until 7.30pm (GMT) on Friday 13 November.
