Wagner, Davies, Bruckner - Part 1

Episode 1 of 2

From the Royal Albert Hall. Jiri Belohlavek conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the Prelude to Act 3 of Wagner's Lohengrin and the world premiere of Tansy Davies's Wild Card.


Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Penny Gore

Bruckner, like his hero Wagner, composed on a vast scale. The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Chief Conductor, Jiri Belohlávek, pairs the festive prelude from Act 3 of Wagner's 'swan knight' romance with the most overarching and open-hearted of Bruckner's nine symphonies - a work whose slow movement was composed in the shadow of Wagner's death and enshrines Bruckner's musical memorial to the man he revered as the 'Master'. Always a composer of vivid and funky surprises, Tansy Davies promises in her new work to take us on a journey through the Tarot pack.
