Many 19th-century musicians either supported Wagner’s innovations, or favoured the more traditional Brahms, but tonight we can simply bask in the brilliance of both. The Prelude to Act 1 of Lohengrin is an exquisite example of Wagner’s shimmering, spine-tingling orchestration and slowly unfolding harmonies, reaching heights of sublime beauty.

Brahms’s Violin Concerto is another treat, with a particularly delectable slow movement. Belgian composer Franck combined French ‘cyclic’ form, in which certain phrases recur throughout, with a more Germanic style – like Wagner, Franck revelled in lush orchestral sounds.
