City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

Concert No 8
(in subscription package)

Gwasgwch yma i ddarllen y wybodaeth yn Gymraeg / Press here to read this info in Welsh.

 Conductor   Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla   
 Soloist  Rudolf Buchbinder, Piano   
 Wagner  Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde   17' 
 Schumann   Piano Concerto in A minor  31' 
 Beethoven  Symphony No 5  36'

 

Heady sensuality and physical longing saturate the Prelude and Liebestod from Wagner’s operatic masterpiece first performed in Munich in 1865. Twenty years earlier Schumann completed his only Piano Concerto designed for his wife Clara. Its eloquence, lyrical refinement and playfulness ensure its regular place in the repertoire. By contrast, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, launched by its famous knocking rhythm, is one of the composer’s most dramatic and recognised works.
