Both works by Mahler and Stravinsky contain expansive and beautiful melodic lines, traditional harmonic language, and each composer’s personal stamp of form, structure and emotion.
The Duet Philharmonic Orchestra comprises the best-of-the-best music students from schools across the UK who perform every two years at Royal Festival Hall. The concert commences with a performance of Wagner’s Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, an exemplary tapestry of Wagner’s leitmotif technique revealing all of the themes from the vast opera distilled into simultaneous counterpoint.
