Description

Strauss’ Fledermaus Overture from the famous Golden Hall – the Musikverein in Vienna. Synonymous with that city, the popularity of Strauss is complemented by the genius of Mozart and our collection takes in an overture and the Queen of the Night Aria, Der Holle Rache. Whilst the famous Hall was being built, Bizet was shocking Parisian audiences with his outrageous Carmen and the Entr’Acte 1 is followed by the Toreador Aria and Chorus. Wagner’s music was performed here in his lifetime and this great master closes our first Vienna collection. We’ll hear Mild und Leise from Tristan and Isolde, featuring the renowned soprano, Francesca Pattane and to close, a passionate interpretation of the Overture from Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg.
