Described by the violinist Midori as ‘so rhapsodic and so individual’, DoReMi is Hungarian composer Peter Eötvös’s second violin concerto. Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra in the UK premiere of the work.

Eötvös’s ‘world of simple things’ and the sparkling overture to Mozart’s 1786 backstage comedy of artistic tantrums and overblown egos, Der Schauspieldirektor, contrast with the misty melancholy of Bruckner’s great tribute to Wagner, the Seventh Symphony, its orchestration permeated by the sound of four Wagner tubas.
