Graham Abbott presenter

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.

Always a sell-out, we recommend securing your seat as soon as possible.
