Classical Tahoe: Haydn, Schubert, & Wagner
July 23 @ 7:00 pm
- Wagner’s Siegfriend Idly is a “musical love letter” and grand gesture of affection to his wife Cosima. Wagner presented it to Cosima on her 33rd birthday, also Christmas day. Perfect for date night in Lake Tahoe!
“As I awoke, my ear caught a sound, which swelled fuller and fuller. . . . Music was sounding, and such music! When it died away, Richard came into my room with the children and offered me the score of the symphonic birthday poem. I was in tears, but so was the rest of the household.”
– Cosima Wagner, the wife of Richard Wagner, 1870
- Haydn’s Sinfonia Concertante is light, quirky, and classically enjoyable music featuring four Classical Tahoe Orchestra musicians as soloists: Sarah Vonsattel, violin, Winona Zelenka, cello, Nathan Hughes, oboe, and Whitney Crockett, bassoon.
- When Schubert wrote his Symphony No.3, he was just 18 years old!
