LA Phil: Gustavo Conducts Gurrelieder

May 28-31, 2020


Program:
SCHOENBERG: Gurrelieder
 
Composed in a lush, post-Wagnerian idiom, Schoenberg’s “Songs of the Gurre Castle,” taken together, are a massive, ambitious epic about love, death, and nature. Calling for five vocal soloists, a narrator, three male choruses, a large mixed chorus, and a tremendous orchestra (including ten horns and four harps!), it uses its extravagant forces to tell of a tragic love triangle. 
 
These performances are made possible by generous support from the Lloyd E. Rigler – Lawrence E. Deutsch Foundation.
