Manfred Honeck and René Pape Wagner, Bruckner. With the Verbier Festival Orchestra

About

The Verbier Festival Orchestra invites Manfred Honeck and René Pape!

The programme opens with excerpts from famous Wagner operas: Tannhäuser of which they perform the long and sublime overture, Das Rheingold and Die Walküre of which they chose arias for bass, performed by René Pape, a specialist of the composer's works.

The concert closes with Bruckner's gigantic Symphony No. 7 – the composer's most famous piece. Its Adagio is said to be written after Wagner. Four Wagner-Tüben are featured in the orchestra in order to pay tribute to the Bayreuth master.
