Welcome to Musically Speaking where we present classical concerts with a twist: Video screens either side of the stage give fascinating close-ups of the musicians. The conductor invites you into the music with commentary and insights from the stage. World-class guest artists perform classical favourites and introduce you to new pieces that may just become your next favourite.

Along the Danube mixes irresistible Hungarian folk music with grand storytelling. Guy Braunstein brings his intimate sound to Hungarian composer Béla Bartók’s rich second Violin Concerto. Globe-trotting Viennese conductor Sascha Goetzel leads the VSO in charming musical tales from the Vienna Woods, featuring Richard Strauss and Franz Schubert.

Please join us after the concert for a post-concert Q&A with the guest artists.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Musically Speaking series and is also playing in Surrey on October 11, 2019.
