As part of the 'Wagner 200' celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of Richard Wagner's birth, Aurora under Nicholas Collon presents 'The Gift' – a narrated re-creation of his 'Siegfried Idyll', performed as a birthday gift for his wife Cosima.
Actors Dame Harriet Walter and Henry Goodman narrate a new script created especially for this concert by Wagner 200 curator Barry Millington.
The Wagner piece will be paired with Beethoven's Septet.
