Violin Concerto to be announced
Wagner Prelude & Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde
Strauss Don Juan, Op. 20
Anne-Sophie Mutter violin
Marios Papadopoulos conductor
Legendary violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter makes a welcome return to Oxford in what promises to be a phenomenal performance. Passion sings its way through the second half of the concert: ecstasy courses through Strauss’s depiction of the hedonist Don Juan, while love flows through the climactic tension of the most arresting orchestral music from Wagner’s opera on infatuation and transcendence, Tristan und Isolde.
