Can you imagine greeting the day to the sounds of one of the most heavenly pieces of music ever written? On Christmas morning 1870, Wagner’s wife Cosima woke to hear the Siegfried Idyll played by musicians posted on the stairwell outside her door. Created as a birthday gift, and to celebrate the birth of their son Siegfried, Wagner told Cosima that he had ‘unconsciously woven our whole life into it’.
The ASO’s own Colin Prichard takes centre stage in one of the first virtuoso works for solo trombone, by none other than Mozart’s father Leopold. Speaking of brass, Holst’s masterpiece for band,
his Suite No.1, was transformed into a brilliant orchestral work by his friend Gordon Jacob, and is conducted today by someone who always brings out the best in British music, the ASO’s former Chief Conductor, Nicholas Braithwaite.
