Wagner: Siegfried Idyll
Britten: Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge
Mozart: Symphony No. 39
After leading triumphant performances of Beethoven's Eighth Symphony in the 2013-14 season, British conductor Paul McCreesh returns to direct a program of works ranging from the Classical period to the 20th century. This program opens with Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, a piece based on music from the composer’s opera Siegfried, written for his wife Cosima as a gift to awaken her on her birthday. This is followed by Britten's touching homage to his music teacher, Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge. The program closes with Mozart's 39th Symphony, one of the final symphonic statements in the composer’s prolific career.
