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.
