About

For the first time on medici.tv, experience the talents of the marvelous Ewa Tracz in this concert brimming with romance! Live from the Katowice Concert Hall, the soprano joins the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, led by the great maestra Marin Alsop. The uber-romantic program begins with two of the most enduring moments in all of opera—from Wagner's Tristan und Isolde, the famed, revolutionary Prelude and the heartbreaking apotheosis of the Liebestod—then continues with Szymanowski's Love Songs of Hafiz and Prokofiev's beloved Romeo and Juliet!
