Leominster Festival: Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra: Wagner - Siegfried Idyll : Bruckner - Symphony No. 8 in C minor @ Leominster Priory

The festival comes to an end for 2017 in the traditional way with the rich sound of the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO).

Once again the BPO has chosen to play in Leominster’s historic Priory Church.

Wagner’s gentle idyll, intended as a birthday (and Christmas) present to his wife, Cosima, takes familiar themes from the third part of The Ring of the Nibelung, and weaves them into a seamless romantic tapestry.

Bruckner’s last completed symphony, associated by some with the apocalypse, is by turns contemplative, dreamy, wild and impassioned, and ultimately triumphant.

Conductor is Michael Lloyd.
