Take a whirl through the most melodic masterworks of the German repertoire: waltzing with Brahms at his most relaxed and good-natured; revelling with Mozart in the dazzling melody and invention of the Sinfonia Concertante; and scaling the peaks of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, described by Wagner as 'the apotheosis of the dance' and surging to one of the most thrilling endings in all music.
