There is no voice on earth quite like Sir Byrn Terfel’s. Here, the bass-baritone joins the Orchestra for some of the most monumental moments in Wagner, and roles the Welsh singer has made his own the world over.
Before we hear such intense and multifaceted drama from Der Ring des Nibelungen and Die Meistersinger, our own Solo Oboe Clara Dent plays the Oboe Concerto by Wagner’s acolyte Richard Strauss, after John Traill conducts the first performance of a new work by Toby Anderson, winner of our 2021 Composers’ Workshop.
