Wagner: Wotan’s Journey - all of Wotan’s monologues from the Ring
Sir John is a legendary singer of his generation. His magnificently intense and expressive voice is ideal for both intimate and heroic music. In this concert we will hear him in both genres. In our previous two seasons we have listened to Schubert’s two great earlier song cycles. Now we will hear his final burst of creativity, the song collection Schwanengesang, his ‘Swansong’ in reality. After the interval, this great Wagnerian will sing Wotan’s Journey - all Wotan’s great solos from The Ring – a distillation of the essence of Wagner’s drama, with the distinguished pianist Christopher Glynn taking on the role of the Wagnerian orchestra. This will be an unforgettable evening.
