Conductor: Gustavo Dudamel
Symphony No. 3 in E flat major, op. 97 “Rhenish”
Das Rheingold (The Rhinegold): Einzug der Götter in Walhall (Entry of the Gods into Valhalla) (concert version)
Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods): Siegfrieds Rheinfahrt (Siegfried’s Rhine Journey) and Trauermarsch (Funeral March) (concert version)
Siegfried: Waldweben (Forest Murmurs) (concert version)
Die Walküre (The Valkyrie): Walkürenritt (Ride of the Valkyries) (concert version)
The orchestral music from Wagner’s Ring des Nibelungen is ideal for a concert at Berlin’s Waldbühne. Particularly with such a dynamic conductor as Gustavo Dudamel, pieces like the Ride of the Valkyries develop an impact that reaches even the very last row of the enormous auditorium. Like Wagner’s opera cycle, Robert Schumann’s Third Symphony lease us to the Rhine, inspiring the composer to vibrating and sonorous music.
