Duration: 2 hours

From the Royal Albert Hall, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Donald Runnicles perform two great works by Wagner and Bruckner.

Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, a gift to the composer's wife Cosima, is performed in its pared-down original orchestration, much as she would have heard it on Christmas morning 1870.

Bruckner's magnificent 8th Symphony is arguably his greatest, the last symphony the composer completed. Presented by Charles Hazlewood.
