Basingstoke Symphony Orchestra String Workshop
Saturday 12th May 10.00am - 3.30pm
Wagner - Tristan and Isolde:
Prelude & Liebestod
Ravel - Piano Concerto in G: Ivana Gavric
Sibelius - Symphony No. 1
Richard Wagner’s groundbreaking operas are celebrated with extracts from his epic tale of unfulfilled love, Tristan und Isolde. The daring music the begins the opera dramatically altered the course of the history of music, and 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of its composer.
Concluding this concert, the first of Jean Sibelius’s seven dramatic and descriptive symphonies is as evocative of his great musical heroes as it is of the landscape and legends of his native Finland.
