Imagine a huge, sumptuous musical panorama of the world in autumn, written for an enormous orchestra, and bathed in radiant colours and lush romantic melodies. Incredibly, the Austrian composer Joseph Marx's An Autumn Symphony was forgotten for over 80 years after its controversial premiere in Vienna in 1922; but anyone who loves Mahler or Richard Strauss needs to hear the first UK performance of this extraordinary hymn to nature. Julia Fischer's performances of Chausson's rapturous Poème and Respighi's haunting Autumn Poem will set the mood wonderfully for what looks like being another landmark musical rediscovery by Vladimir Jurowski.
