A celebration of grand opera and delicate beauty
Richter’s dramatic homage to Wagner’s grand operas marks the stage return of WASO Horns and opens the first digital ensemble concert for 2020. Mendelssohn’s irresistible Octet then rises majestically and takes you through to a joyous and energetic finale as the WASO strings whisk you away to a wintery dream-state.
