Die Walküre, the second of the four music dramas which make up the Ring cycle, is the apotheosis of Romantic music drama and one of Richard Wagner’s most passionate works. From the very first note, the orchestra sweeps us along in its wake. Storms, incest, divine wrath and undying passion can be found in embryo in these turbulent bars which foretell the heroes’ torturous fate. They lay the foundations for the story, which is hugely lyrical and splendidly human. It is undoubtedly the perfect immersive introduction to the teeming world of Richard Wagner, who wrote some of his most passionate and poignant music here. Yannick Nézet-Seguin at the helm of the Rotterdam Orchestra pursues his Wagner concert cycle with Stanislas de Barbeyrac’s first Sigmund.
