Music Director Lothar Koenigs and the WNO Orchestra want to share some extraordinary music with you. This music may be less familiar than the popular classics. However, through their conviction and passion, the orchestra prove that it is no less moving or exhilarating. Lothar and the orchestra believe deeply in this music. By spending a couple of hourse with them at St David's Hall, you will too.

Our concert this January reflects on the composer in love. Passionate and evoking, a few tales are told through the music about these great composers which will stir the heart. An evening of potent and opulent music paying tribute to great artistic muses who inspired great composers.

Lyric Suite
Mysterious yet mesmerising - Alban Berg's deepest sentiments are buried in this atmospheric piece.

Wesendonck Lieder
Wagner arr. Mottl
Here is the beautiful, raw emotion that Wagner is so masterfully able to carve.

Symphonie Fantastique
Joy, passion, fury and tenderness - Berlioz's celebration of an artist in love.
