Musica Viva presents a programme of rarely performed non-operatic music by Richard Wagner inspired and dedicated to the two women who were the two great loves of the composer: Cosima Liszt, Wagner’s second wife who bore him three children while she was still married to another man; and Mathilde Wesendonck, with whom Wagner developed an intimate relationship for 12 years and from whom he drew inspiration for his great tragedy of love, Tristan und Isolde. Performing this programme are sopranos Sandy Leung and Amanda Li, mezzo-soprano Carol Lin, pianists Nancy Loo and Hsu Wei-en, and the Music Viva chamber orchestra conducted by Samuel Pang.

非凡美樂舉辦這個精彩的音樂會,把節目重點放在華格納甚少被演出的非歌劇曲目, 這些樂曲都是華格納獻給他一生中的兩名至愛﹕歌絲瑪‧李斯特與威森東克夫人。歌絲瑪是華格納的第二任妻子,且在她依然是他人的妻子時,為華格納生下了三個孩兒。威森東克夫人則與華格納發展了長達十二年的親密關係,,亦是華格納偉大的悲情歌劇《崔斯坦與伊索德》的靈感來源。是次演出者包括女高音梁少瑩與李蕙姸、女中音連皓忻、鋼琴家羅乃新與徐惟恩、以及由彭施皿指揮的非凡美樂室樂團。
