Wagner Siegfried Idyll
About the performance
Part concert, part guided-musical-journey; this is music education at its finest.
German composer, Richard Wagner created the Siegfried Idyll, a symphonic poem, as a birthday present to his second wife. This personal piece (scored for a small orchestra of 13 instruments) perfectly captures feelings of affection and adoration.
Delve more deeply into this blissful love song for chamber orchestra with conductor and presenter Richard Gill – the founding Music Director and Conductor Emeritus of Victorian Opera; an admired conductor (specialising in opera and musical theater); and an internationally-regarded music educator.
Always a sell-out, we recommend securing your seat as soon as possible.
