Dvorák's Violin Concerto is a hidden gem, a work of tremendous vitality and presence, by turns beguiling, wistful and brilliant, infused with the atmosphere of the composer's Czech homeland.
Brahms's First Symphony needs little introduction. Brahms delayed writing a symphonic work until the age of 44, overwhelmed by the spectre of Beethoven, but his anxiety was misplaced - at its première it was hailed as 'Beethoven's 10th'.
