Surviving Wagner

Gabriel Fauré, Ladykiller

Gabriel Fauré, Ladykiller

This weekend (March 6 and 7) the St. Louis Symphony performs Fauré’s Elegy for Cello and Orchestra, Wagner’s “Brünnhilde’s Immolation” from Götterdämmerung (Christine Brewer, soprano); and Bruckner’s Symphony No. 3.

My program notes are here:

  1. I can’t believe the person who writes these amazing essays is my friend!

    Does Nina Simone sing Here Comes the Sun? I keep imagining it.

    I particularly enjoyed reading about Bruckner.

    Love you!
