One such is An Autumn Symphony of the Austrian composer Joseph Marx. The teacher and composer was out of favour in the 1930s, and his work became neglected. But this poetic, romantic and impressionistic symphonic, first performed to a surprised audience in 1922, has everything that a modern listener expects from a big orchestral work – shifting keys, a refusal to be pigeon-holed into any one school, and an overarching view of life.
It was lost for decades, performed in the US in 2008, and receives its first ever UK performance at this concert (29 Nov), when is be played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under its principal conductor Vladimir Jurowski, a champion of unfairly neglected works.
The evening also features Respighi's richly-coloured Autumn Poem, with Julia Fischer as the violin soloist, and Chausson's haunting Poème.
It's not every day you can say you went to a first performance: catch this UK premiere of Marx's great work.
