Glorious melodies and vivid orchestral colours emerge from dark timpani strokes to open the Philharmonia's 2018/19 season. Across two programmes, Principal Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen makes connections between the music of Wagner, Schoenberg and Bruckner. In Siegfried's cataclysmic death scene from Gotterdammerung, Wagner traverses the full range of human emotion, while Bruckner brings a sense of daring into his Sixth Symphony through powerful melodies that grow out of a tingling rhythm in the strings. Framed by the two earlier works, Arnold Schoenberg's Erwartung heralds a new era in music. Schoenberg's spellbinding sonorities 'represent in slow motion everything that occurs during a single second of maximum spiritual excitement'. Performers Philharmonia Orchestra Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor Camilla Nylund soprano Repertoire Wagner: Siegfried's Death and Funeral March from Gotterdammerung Schoenberg: Erwartung - opera in 1 act for soprano & orchestra Interval Bruckner: Symphony No.6
