Andris Nelsons conducts Beethoven, Debussy & Wagner
Andris Nelsons directs the Munich Philharmonic in this uplifting programme from the Gasteig featuring dances, vivid scenery and poetic inspiration. Starting with Ravel's orchestration of Debussy's early Tarantelle styrienne, the concert has as its central work Beethoven's Sixth Symphony, the composer's celebrated portrayal of a lyrical landscape which travels through a panorama of sounds, from flowing water and birdsong to the building violence of a storm – and the joyous celebration of its passing. Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, originally composed as a birthday gift for his wife Cosima and employing motifs from his opera Siegfried, is also characterised by a sense of calm and contemplation that reflects its personal nature.
