Aspen Music Festival: Spano conducts Wagner, Ohlsson plays Lizst



Klein Music Tent, 960 N 3rd Street, Aspen, CO 81611

Event Description

"Top off the 75th anniversary season with a gorgeous interlude by Berlioz, pianistic pyrotechnics, and the unforgettable drama of Wagner’s Die Walküre sung by internationally renowned soloists! The 75th anniversary season comes to an overpowering conclusion with one of the most spectacular and moving acts in all of opera, the finale of Wagner’s Die Walküre. You’ll immediately recognize the iconic Ride of the Valkyries which opens the act. Also on the program is Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto, written in one continuous movement unified by a single exquisite theme. The piece is a roller coaster of contrasts ranging from soft, lyrical passages to thunderous, dramatic cadenzas which show off the soloist’s virtuosity."

BERLIOZ: Royal Hunt and Storm, from Les Troyens
LISZT: Piano Concerto No. 2 in A major, LW H6
WAGNER: Act III from Die Walküre
