The first piece in this concert dedicated to the music of Iván Madarász – RAP-petition – is a true cross-border excursion from the world of classical music to the distant one of rap – distant for both the composer and the young baritone Szilveszter Szélpál, who sings in operas and operettas at the National Theatre of Szeged.

What is it that prompts many great instrumentalists, after decades of success as a soloist and without giving up that career, to also take up the conductor's baton? One presumes it is the need for completeness.

The first piece in the concert is a true delicacy: Ferenc Farkas composed his rarely heard Philharmonic Overture for the 125th anniversary of the establishment of the Budapest Philharmonic. "Symphonic orchestral works make up a relatively tiny proportion of his singularly rich oeuvre, and even fewer are the number of large scale compositions employing a large number of musicians.

Zoltán Kocsis died on 6 November 2016 at the age of 64, after inscribing his name in the most glorious annals of Hungary's musical history as a pianist, composer, teacher and conductor alike. In 1997, after a long and illustrious career as a pianist, he took over the helm of the Hungarian State Symphony Orchestra, which under his leadership embarked on a great journey: renamed the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra, it would evolve into a world-class ensemble.

Radio-Genève commissioned Frank Martin to write his work – to be performed after the end of the global conflagration – in 1944. He later said, "I had no illusions about the peace that would follow the end of the war. Nevertheless, the absence of any illusions did not prevent me from attempting to express the profound despair and the brilliant hope for the future.

Leó Weiner's 1906 Serenade for Small Orchestra is a four-movement orchestral piece dedicated to the composer's teacher, János Koessler. The piece was premièred on 3 December 1907, in Cologne. One of Weiner's first compositions, it owes its popularity to its Hungarian sound. This master of classical forms virtuosically employed the twists and turns of verbunkos and "a fine csárdás".

Is it a measure of the worth of a piece of music to be modern, or to have been considered so back in its own time? For a long time, popular opinion said it was indeed. In "better circles", it was normal to give preference to innovative composers and condemn those who were "behind the times". Nowadays we see things differently, looking primarily at the richness of the work's message, the quality of its artistic elaboration, and on its poetry and evocativeness.

According to records, Heinrich Schütz's Christmas Story (SWV 435) was premièred in Dresden in 1640 with the subtitle "The story of the joyful and blessed birth of Jesus Christ, son of Mary". The work's text consists of a selection of Bible quotes based on the translation by Martin Luther.

How much do we know about Czech music? Many people would answer this question with a confident "a lot", citing Dvořák's Cello Competition and New World Symphony – along with the Vltava movement from Smetena's cycle of symphonic poems Má vlast. The fact is, however, that many pieces of Czech music are rarely or never heard in concerts in Hungary.

The first piece on the programme is the overture to the last opera that Gioachino Rossini ever wrote, in 1829. It quotes four important themes: the idyllic melody heard from the cello is followed by the depiction of a sudden storm, before transitioning into the pastoral song of an English horn and the drumbeats of horses galloping into battle.

In 1849, Weimar celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Goethe. One of the works they performed was the poet's drama Torquato Tasso, for which Franz Liszt was commissioned to write an overture. The composer, however, took his inspiration not from Goethe's drama, but from Lord Byron's poem The Lament of Tasso, a picture of a poet oppressed by despotism.

Tchaikovsky originally intended to dedicate his work from 1874/75 to his friend Nikolai Rubinstein. However, the pianist, composer and conductor only received withering criticism for the piece, and so the dedication went to the student of Franz Liszt and the first husband of his daughter Cosima, Hans von Bülow who premièred it in Boston in 1875.

The concerto on the programme is a reflection of two important efforts. The first is the recent "re-appropriation" of Baroque music by traditional symphonic orchestras. In recent decades, as the practice of historically informed performance has gained ground, symphonic ensembles have given up performing Baroque works.

Plenty of connections link the two composers being played in this concert: just like Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss considered Erich Wolfgang Korngold, his junior by 33 years and the son of renowned Viennese critic Julius Korngold, to be a child genius. Both of them were virtuosos of orchestration and both of them were representatives of Post-Romanticism.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach succeeded his godfather, Georg Philipp Telemann, in his post in Hamburg in 1768. Owing to the decades he spent in the court of Frederick the Great, he was considered one of the best known composers of his era. The work being performed at the concert is the first of the four symphonies he composed in 1775 and 1776: Friedrich Nicolai wrote in the Allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek that these works "were the kind of gifts that only Bach could give us."
