Dying for love ("Liebestod"), an extraordinary act devoid of any worldly logic, is also the final aria sung by the protagonist of Tristan and Isolde and one of the highpoints of Romantic music. For the reencounter between the two lovers, Richard Wagner wrote one of the most fascinating pieces of music of all times. The Barcelona Symphony Band's assistant conductor, Carlos Ramón, offers us a programme that revolves around these two Wagnerian characters.

Program

Martin Ellergy composed Tristan Encounters as a kind of tribute to the opening prelude of Tristan and Isolde. It is made up of fourteen variations, reflecting alternating contrasting moods evocative of the plot. Ronde for Isolde by David Bedford is based on the work Ronde by 16th century composer Tielman Susato, although in the central part, it features some resources and literal quotes from Wagner's music. The programme is rounded off by two works by the German composer, Homage March and Trauersinfonie.
