RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra 2009-2010 Season
Friday 16 October, 8pm
Grieg Lyric Suite
Wagner Wesendonck Lieder
Sibelius Lemminkäinen Suite
Patricia Bardon brings us through Wagner's impossible passion for Mathilde Wesendonck, in music of great beauty and opulent colours. Grieg, too, at his most colourful: fresh, gentle, rhapsodic and, in the finale, malevolent. Sibelius' strikingly vivid and haunting Legends were originally conceived as a mythological opera on a scale to match Wagner.
