Schönberg & Wagner with the National Radio Orchestra at the Radio Hall
On Friday, February 2nd 2018, at 19:00, at the Radio Hall, the National Radio Ochestra proposes a repertory, unique from the ones we see on our concert stages, under the baton of conductor Julien Salemkour. The evening will open with Transfigured Night op. 4, by A. Schönberg, a work considered to be situated at the border between the Wagnerian harmony and the musical structures of the Brahmsian style.
The second part of the concert will introduce the second act of the work Tristan and Isolda by Richard Wagner, opera in concert, whose protagonists will be tenor Marius Vlad Budoiu, performing the role of Tristan, soprano Barbara Krieger, who will interpret Isolda, mezzo-soprano Aura Twarowska, performing Brangäne, baritone Daniel Pannermayr, as Marke, and tenor Adrian Dumitru, as Melot.
