Strauss' Vier Letzte Lieder - BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Otto Tausk - Conductor
Erin Wall - Soprano

Programme:
R. Strauss - Four Last Songs
Wagner -The Ring - An Orchestral Adventure

In the Four Last Songs, Strauss takes leave of his long and fruitful life by commemorating those things dearest to him: his love for nature, his wife of fifty-four years and her soprano voice, which he so cherished, and his belief in the transcendence of the soul. It is a deeply personal work, in sharp contrast to the myths and Norse sagas of Wagner’s music dramas in The Ring, here expertly encapsulated in one intrepid orchestral adventure by composer Henk de Vlieger.

Thursday, April 19th, 2018 in Brangwyn Hall, Swansea, Wales, UK
Friday, April 20th, 2018 in St. David's Hall, Cardiff, Wales, UK

Beethoven's 9th Symphony - Cleveland Orchestra

The Cleveland Orchestra's Centennial Season concludes with two weekends focused on the music of Ludwig van Beethoven. Franz Welser-Möst offers a renewed point of view on these groundbreaking works – rooted in a studied understanding of the composer’s philosophy of politics and art, and presented within the context of his thoughts and beliefs.

In doing so, Franz has created “The Prometheus Project,” featuring all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies, paired with important overtures. These concerts are a not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear Beethoven’s musical genius in all its glory — as a full-throated cry for humanity’s heroic “fight for good over evil.”

Peter Grimes - Edinburgh International Festival

What really happened to the young apprentice of surly fisherman Peter Grimes? Suspicion turns to violence when villagers mob together to uncover the unsettling truth.

Benjamin Britten’s immensely powerful work is the defining British opera of the 20th century, a remarkably compelling drama examining gossip, rumour and mob rule in some of the composer’s most dramatic sea-inspired music.

Australian tenor Stuart Skelton was widely celebrated for his visceral yet vulnerable recent performance as Grimes at English National Opera. He returns to the title role, teaming up again with Edward Gardner, who makes his second 2017 International Festival appearance with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. They are joined by a powerful international cast, including Canadian soprano Erin Wall as the woman who tries to save the shunned outsider.
