The concert will be available at 7.30pm on Thursday 10th December, and for 30 days following.
The penultimate concert in the re:connect series explores the theme of ‘awakening’. Alongside works by Sibelius and Nielsen, the performance features Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll. Written as a birthday gift for his wife Cosima, she woke on Christmas morning 1869 to it being performed on the stairs of their home. The concert closes with Mozart’s Symphony No 34, the last symphony written in Salzburg before ‘awakening’ his independent career in Vienna and beyond
To help to get the most out of the performance, we are also delighted to offer a complimentary programme for the concert, with more details of the performers and works included. Download the programme here.
