Fourth Carnegie Hall Concert
An ALL-WAGNER Program


WAGNER - THE EPIC & THE LYRIC
WAGNER songs composed 1838-40*
Complete Wesendonck Lieder
TRISTAN's Synthesis
The Rare & Familiar Rienzi

Wagner's early years in his mid-twenties wherein all he surveyed reflected his sanguine love of life, his view that all is ephemeral, his empathy for man's tribulations, and his tenderness towards children -- a classic Lullaby -- and his identification with young lovers. This purview of his output sweeps along with a Landscape of two of his Heroes TRISTAN & RIENZI: Political, Tormented, Romantic, Lusty, & Fearless in Syntheses revealing their outward, and most personal inner compulsions.
