Beethoven - Violin Concerto
Wagner - Die Walküre Act 1

Nicholas Carter steps onto the podium for his first concert as the ASO’s Principal Conductor. And in a dark, mythical German forest, an exhausted Siegmund stumbles into the home of Sieglinde.

 

It’s a much-loved chapter from Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle, and it needs no sets or props. One great upward surge of music takes us from uneasy introductions to passionate declarations of love. And the fate of the world is changed.

 

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto is similarly vast in scope, but much cozier. It stretches out like a cat with lots of time on its paws. With Canadian violinist James Ehnes as soloist, it promises to be a particularly agile, elegant performance – music so rapturously unhurried that it seems to be in a dimension of its own.

 

How can one night hold so much? Time races, yet stands still…
