The pieces on the programme of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra’s concert of works by Richard Strauss and Brahms are connected by an invisible link that, nevertheless, can still be heard: the central role in the concerto slated for the middle of the evening goes to the horn, a brass instrument evoking forests, hunting and knightly tournaments that was favoured by the Romantics. The same instrument also plays the intoxicating main theme of the symphonic poem introducing the concert and the anthemic melody of the finale of the symphony featured after the intermission. The German soloist at the concert is one of the finest horn players of our time, and the conductor is of the youngest generation of Hungarian conductors.
