    The Secession Orchestra, which was founded in 2011, has a variable line-up of some forty musicians and explores a vast slice of history from the Viennese Secession to Mahler and contemporary repertoire. As the Christmas season approaches, conductor Clément Mao-Takacs has devised a ball in which Strauss, Liszt, Dvořák and Ravel all come together in the same salon. The programme has a delightfully decadent whiff of Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde.
