Berlioz Royal Hunt and Storm
Leoncavallo I Pagliacci – Prologue
Wagner Ride of the Valkyries & Die Walküre Act 3 extracts
This concert depicts storms – of emotions in Leoncavallo’s tragedy; of the elements pictured by Berlioz around the troubled romance of Dido and Aeneas; of domestic intrigue and upheaval in Figaro; and of the passions of Wagner’s Gods and warrior-maidens. But it also portrays the calm of emotion spent. A spectacular conclusion to our musical season.
