A great evening where the superhuman meets the all-too-human: virtuosic and erotic in Liszt, sacred and sinful in Wagner. The solo part in Liszt is played by the French pianist Alexandre Kantorow. He won the renowned Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition in 2019, plus the Grand Prix of the overall competition. Kantorow will be joined by the SWR Symphony Orchestra and the Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado, who conducts both early music ensembles and symphony orchestras with great success. Heras-Casado has also included the last act of Parsifal in the programme. The title role is sung by the Austrian star tenor Andreas Schager.
With surtitles in German and English.
