Richard Wagner


The work about the Swan Knight, sent by the Holy Grail, was not written in one working step, but was the outcome of an intense and struggling work process. In 1846 came the first, in 1847 a second overall design and only in 1848 did the final complete valid score appear, a score which according to Adorno, enabled the orchestra’s sound under Wagner to really emerge.

Mit diesem Werk begründete Verdi seinen Weltruhm. Der Gefangenenchor aus dem dritten Akt ist bis heute ein Schlager geblieben. Aber auch der Rest der Oper spart nicht an wundervollen, zündenden und einprägsamen Melodien.

Der einprägsamen Melodik, der farbenprächtigen Instrumentation und der detailreich ausgearbeiteten musikalischen Struktur verdankt Gounods „Faust“ bis heute ihre ungebrochene Popularität.

To many, Carmen is the archetypal woman who never allows anyone to rob her of her freedom, to others again an insatiable jezebel ultimately incapable of relationships and love. The stirring and emotionally charged melodies of this opera still enchant legions of listeners to this day.
