Experience the richness of the Romantic
orchestral sound and the power of the voice with Wagner and
Lisa Gasteen is a star - commanding the big roles of the
operatic stage. In 2013 she makes a long-awaited return to the
Sydney Symphony, performing Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder - five
intense songs inspired by the elation and heartbreak of a great
love affair. It's Tristan und Isolde in miniature.
The inspiration behind Bruckner's final, unfinished symphony was
not earthly love but religious faith, and the result is
transcendent in its luminous beauty. In Simone Young we have
Australia's most significant interpreter of Bruckner. When she came
to Sydney in 2010 to conduct Bruckner's Seventh,The
Australian praised her performance for its "expansive,
long-breathed lines" and "thrilling cumulative power". Bruckner
fans: look forward to another sublime treat.
