As unmistakable giants of European musical romanticism and profound connoisseurs of Greek art, R. Wagner and H. Berlioz have left for musical posterity two cycles of songs that reveal the genius of each of them: the Wesendonck lieder and Les nuits d’été, respectively. These are songs with a heightened sense of lyricism and a tremendous passion, which uniquely crystallise the period during which the two composers lived. These two cycles, genuine tours de force for any singer, will be performed by the international Portuguese soprano Elisabete Matos, who will also première the work of the composer Nuno Côrte-Real, Canções Helénicas (Hellenic Songs), based on poems by Sophia. To complete the programme, we will also hearthe Consecration of the House Overture, by L. V. Beethoven, composed in 1822 for the inauguration of a new theatre in Vienna. This small excerpt, in the style of Bach and Händel, was included in the incidental music The Ruins of Athens, which was reintroduced as a replacement for the previous overture. The concert will enjoy the participation of the Orquesta Sinfonica Castilla y León, conducted by Nuno Côrte-Real.
