Fliter Plays Chopin

Wagner’s Ring adventure

Drama in music
Wagner 200
Dates Thu 19 Sep, Fri 20 Sep, Sat 21 Sep Venue Sydney Opera House
Duration 2 hours 10 mins (incl. 20-min interval)

An evening of Wagner without the horned helmets, and the aristocratic elegance of a Chopin piano concerto.

The Ring. From the depths of a river to giddying heights. Magic and fire. A special sword. Lust and power, courage and betrayal. One epic to rule them all…

Yes, it's Wagner's Ring cycle - and if you prefer Wagner without the singing, then this is the concert for you. In this concert, twenty hours of some of the greatest music ever written has been woven into a one-hour symphonic adventure for orchestra.

Wagner's music for The Ring evokes a world of gods and warriors, of lust, power and violence. Chopin's music belongs indoors in a world of refinement and elegance. And in his aristocratic Piano Concerto No.2 he blends rippling virtuosity, Polish dance rhythms and poignant lyricism - in this concert it's the piano that sings. 

A Wagner 200th anniversary concert.

Pre-concert talk by Gordon Kalton Williams at 7.15pm in the Northern Foyer.
