WAGNER, HIS CONTEMPORARIES AND FOLLOWERS
In anticipation of Opera Queensland’s Tristan und Isolde, pianist Alex Raineri and Wagner scholar and author Peter Bassett present a compelling program exploring the world of Richard Wagner through his letters and music, tracing connections with his contemporaries and his influence on those who came afterwards.
Critically acclaimed Wagner, His Contemporaries and Followers reunites Raineri and Bassett after a successful season at the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Recital Centre in 2016. The fascinating repertoire, performed with Bassett’s rich narrative layered over Raineri’s technique and brilliance, presents Brisbane audiences with a rare opportunity to engage with the music of Wagner in a rich and detailed way.
