Marc Albrecht conducts Wagner at the BBC Proms

September 9 will be all about Wagner for Marc Albrecht when he appears at the BBC Proms with a big Wagner evening. He thus revives an old Proms tradition, as composer-specific nights were an integral part of the festival’s early days. In the first half, the concert revolves around enchanted forests, which were among the most important symbols of German Romanticism. In the second part, Albrecht, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, soprano Christine Goerke and tenor Stephen Gould present scenes from ‘Götterdämmerung’.
