THE LORD OF THE RING
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

HAILED AS A SOPRANO 'BORN TO SING WAGNER' (THE IRISH TIMES), Tralee-born Miriam Murphy received a standing ovation on her last appearance with the RTÉ NSO. She returns to mark the 200th anniversary of Wagner's birth as we celebrate his towering genius with some of his greatest music.

Wallow in Tristan's swooning Prelude and soaring Liebestod, indulge in the magnificence of the Tannhäuser and Meistersinger Overtures, thrill to the vertiginous Ride of the Valkyries (popularised in the film Apocalypse Now), and melt with the Wesendonck Lieder, ravishing expressions of love at its most infatuated and intense, about which the composer declared: 'I have done nothing better than these songs'.

Soundings, 7pm: In Conversation
Former director of the National Concert Hall Judith Woodworth with Matthias Bamert on Wagner and his music
