The RCO head deep into Romantic heritage with music by Berg, Wagner and MahlerFew composers test an orchestra quite like Wagner, Mahler and their followers of the Second Viennese School. In this magnificent programme, Daniele Gatti shares all his sense of drama with an orchestra whose tradition in this repertoire dates back to Mahler himself.
He’ll also be inviting musicians from the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain onstage in the prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg: creating orchestral sound of a richness and splendour that would have had Wagner himself swooning.
Programme and Performers:
- Wagner Prelude from Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg*
- 'Dawn', 'Siegfried's Rhine Journey', 'Siegfried's Death and Funeral March' from Götterdämmerung
- Mahler Adagio from Symphony No 10
- Berg Three Orchestral Pieces
