When you think of Johannes Brahms, chances are the first thing you think of is his inimitable lullaby. But what’s the second? Probably his suite of Hungarian Dances. Bowing to popular demand, the Balmain Sinfonia conducted by Gary Stavrou will perform the Hungarian Dances No.s 11-16 in its upcoming concert along with Haydn’s Cello Concerto No 1, which will feature soloist Georg Pedersen, one of Australia’s foremost teachers and performers.
