The program of this archived broadcast, filmed in October 2020, combines lyricism and passion with three striking works that chart the human experience of dreams and imagination. From Wagner’s Siegfried-Idyll to Greco-Roman mythology as depicted by Debussy in his Prélude à l’après-midi d’ un faune, this foray into the dreamworld culminates in one of the Romantic repertoire’s masterpieces of sensitivity: Schubert’s famous “Unfinished” Symphony.
