Richard Wagner félagið á Íslandi

Ágætu félagar.

Við höfum ákveðið að fresta fyrirlestri Aðalheiðar Guðmundsdóttur um Völsungasögu í máli og mynd, sem halda átti 24. apríl til 8. maí.

Vonandi getum við haldið hann þá við betri aðstæður, kl 14 í Safnaðarheimili Dómkirkjunnar.

Hér fyrir neðan eru upplýsingar frá Wagnerfélaginu í London um Wagneróperur í boði frá erlendum óperuhúsum. Parsifal (glænýr frá Vín með Jónasi Kaufmann), Lohengrin og Loriot Hringurinn á einu kvöldi.

Styrkþeginn okkar fyrrverandi, Herdís Anna Jónasdóttir, verður með tónleika 7. maí ásamt Bjarna Frímanni í Hörpu. Á sama tíma verða Kristinn Sigmundsson og Stuart Skelton með tónleika í Salnum. Herdís mun einnig syngja í 4. sinfóníu Mahlers, og verða þeir tónleikar 29. apríl.

Með baráttukveðjum!

The Labyrinth of Time: The Norn Scene in Götterdämmerung by Jeffrey Swann

Jeffrey Swann will analyze this fascinating scene from the standpoint of Wagner’s evocation of past, present, and future times. The discussion will be followed by a performance of the entire scene in Swann’s own piano transcription. Jeffrey Swann has performed all over the world with numerous major conductors. He has also lectured at the Bayreuth Festival and the Wagner Society of New York, among other societies.
