Two extraordinary musical traditions work side by side in this amazing programme. Kristjan Järvi, younger son of Neeme and brother of Paavo, from the distinguished Estonian musical dynasty, joins forces with one of the LSO’s most popular artists, the Hungarian Romani virtuoso Roby Lakatos, prime exponent of a famous tradition of Central European violin playing which has inspired a wealth of great music from Brahms and Bruch to Johann Strauss, Franz Lehar and modern jazz.

The fiery programme begins with a full orchestral arrangement of Brahms' first piano quartet with its Rondo alla Zingarese (Gypsy-style) finale, before Roby joins the LSO in the second half for a unique and dazzling mix of classical, jazz and folk music.

Programme Confirmation, 12 Feb 2015
Please note that, in a change to earlier listings, this concert will now no longer feature Brahms' Hungarian Dances and Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen.
