Alison Balsom,

Mahler's Symphony No. 1 echos with European folk dances, spiced by a macabre sense of humour and glowing with an all-embracing love of humanity. The gracious, polished music of Johann Nepomuk Hummel, pupil of Mozart and Haydn and friend of Beethoven, epitomizes the music of the early-nineteenth century.

Come for: BBC Music Magazine calls gifted soloist Alison Balsom, "a true poet of the trumpet as well as a formidable athlete." British conductor Edward Gardner, one of today's hottest young Maestros, makes his TSO début.

And more: Wagner's Prelude to Die Meistersinger is an audience favourite.
