Wagner, Schumann and Beethoven | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Sunday, May 19, 2013 - 15:00

A concert that has it all: embracing majesty, inspiring warmth, flashing virtuosity, touching romance and fortifying revolution. Be swept along by the processing glory of Wagner’s Overture to Die Meistersinger and the rapturous sweep of Schumann’s heartfelt Piano Concerto. Next comes utterly different Wagner; the intimate strains of the piece he arranged to be played on his wife’s birthday morning, Siegfried Idyll. To end, one of the most iconic pieces in all music: Beethoven’s musical vision of fate, his proclamation of victory over tyranny and fate – the ever-surprising and exhilarating Fifth Symphony.
