Hungarian dances, Russian violins - and a showcase for the whole orchestra!

Bartók’s lively Dance Suite was written in 1923 to remember the joining of Buda and Pest 50 years earlier. With the CBSO and Kazuki Yamada it glows and dances with Hungarian folk-like rhythms and melodies. Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No.2 – a blend of fire and ice – is perfect for the supreme artistry of Isabelle Faust. In the second half, Akio Yashiro celebrates the entire Orchestra in his symphony.
