Classical New England — 2013/08/31

As I mentioned last week, the Boston Symphony Orchestra is between seasons, so for his weekend and the following two, Classical New England will devote the BSO time slot (7:00-11:00 p.m.) to rebroadcasts/webstreams of various concerts — some by the BSO and some by others. This evening's is clearly described on the Classical New England BSO page.
As part of WGBH's Opera Bash, WCRB revisits two spectacular Boston Symphony concerts featuring works by Richard Wagner in celebration of the bicentennial of the composer's birth.

Michelle DeYoungFirst, from a Symphony Hall concert in March, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung is the guest soloist in a program that includes excerpts fromGötterdammerung, Tannhäuser, Parsifal, Lohengrin, and Tristan und Isolde, conducted by Daniele Gatti.

Bryn TerfelThen, from a July performance at Tanglewood, Bryn Terfel sings the role of Wotan in Act III of Die Walküre, with Katarina Dalayman as Brünnhilde, Amber Wagner as Sieglinde, and Elizabeth Byrne as Waltraute, conducted by Lothar Koenigs.
The Walküre portion will begin about 9:00.

Next week it will be a Proms concert from the Royal Albert Hall, and the week after that we can listen to the Tanglewood concert of August 6
