Post-concert Coda: A few minutes after the concert, guest soloist Daniela Lehner will perform a short, informal recital in BBC Hoddinott Hall. A near death experience that Richard Strauss suffered as a young man resulted in the extraordinary intensity and passion of his Death and Transfiguration. Hear it next to the sumptuous romanticism of Zeminsky's Maeterlinck Lieder, evoking the world of pre-1914 Vienna. And there's the intimate calm of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, written as a gift on Christmas morning to his wife, Cosima and the exquisite delicacy of Takemitsu's music - described by Simon Rattle as "like bite-size" Sushi.
