  • A prominent figure of Hungarian music, Zoltán Kodály, and his energetic Dances of Galánta, based on melodies from the town of Galánta (now in Slovakia) where the composer spent his youth • Böse Zellen, a piano concerto with a title that is difficult to translate but is conventionally rendered as Free Radicals, by the important contemporary Austrian composer, Thomas Larcher (born 1963), inspired by Barbara Albert’s 2003 film drama of the same name, about the intersections of chance and fate in human lives; the work was composed in 2006-2007 on the instigation of Dennis Russell Davies and premiered by him, the composer as the soloist and the Munich Chamber Orchestra • Permeated by Romantic emotional lyricism and featuring ingeniously elaborated themes, Schumann’s Symphony in D minor was composed in 1841, shortly after his first symphony, but since it was substantially revised later, in 1853, it was published as his fourth, with a higher opus number
