Tippett Triple Concerto
Wagner arr. Vlieger The Ring – An Orchestral Adventure

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Mark Wigglesworth
conductor
Leopold Trio

A rare opportunity to hear Tippett’s Triple Concerto, a masterpiece of his late period when he confessed he had ‘turned my back with some pleasure on the cruel world.’ Characterised by rapt lyricism, the concerto follows the course of a day through twilight to night and dawn, punctuated with magical interludes infused with gamelan-like percussion, inspired by his travels in Bali. Top soloists Isabelle van Keulen, Lawrence Power and Kate Gould of the Leopold Trio join forces with Mark Wigglesworth for this radiant journey. As part of our opera strand comes Henk de Vlieger’s exuberant arrangement of Wagner’s great Ring cycle as a four-part symphony, taking in all the major scenes, beginning with Das Rheingold’s magnificent Prelude and culminating in the destruction of the Gods and Valhalla.
