WAGNER Tristan und Isolde: Prelude and Liebestod

LISZT Piano Concerto No.2

HANS VON BÜLOW Nirwana

BRAHMS Variations on a Theme by Haydn

Wagner's incomparable opera Tristan und Isolde features in the second concert of Alexander Shelley's 360° series, exploring musical influences and relationships that inspired great composers. The profoundly meditative Prelude and Liebestod opens the opera with lush orchestration, expressive harmonies and chromaticism that divided those who heard it in its day, irrevocably influencing the course of Western music in the nineteenth century.

Bülow and Liszt were both contemporaries and supporters of Wagner, whose personal relationships are well documented through Wagner's scandalous affair with Liszt's daughter - Bülow's wife. Liszt's Piano Concerto No.2 and Bülow's Nirwana exhibit a Wagnerian fanaticism, but countering this is Brahms, whose stalwart conservative voice of the era is heard in the classically influenced Variations on a Theme by Haydn.

Cadogan Hall

For more than seven decades the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) has been at the forefront of music-making in the UK. The Orchestra's regular performances at its London home Cadogan Hall are complemented by a distinguished series at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, a hugely popular series at the Royal Albert Hall and frequent visits to its seven principal residencies across the UK. With a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain's national orchestra.

This Event is at Cadogan Hall

 Cadogan Hall SW1X 9DQ 5 Sloane Terrace, London

Cadogan Estates purchased the Hall in 2000 to safeguard its future. Through their connection with Opera Holland Park, Cadogan discovered that the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was looking for a permanent base in London. The Orchestra is proud to have assisted with Cadogan's aim to bring the former church back into useful life in a manner befitting its character and civic presence.

Despite the scale of the auditorium, the combined effects of the stage, the steeply raked stalls and the low gallery create a surprisingly intimate venue where audiences can experience a very real feeling of being part of the performance.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is proud to be Cadogan Hall's Resident Orchestra.
