The enchantments of the Wesendonck Lieder and the Prelude of Lohengrin by Wagner, the Ravelian charm of Daphnis and Chloé and the virtuoso parts of Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra, under the direction of American conductor Karina Canellakis.
In the Wesendonck Lieder, Wagner composed music on poems written to him by the patron Otto Wesendonck’s wife, with whom he was in love. Testimony of the most sensitive and sensual Ravel, the Second Suite of Daphnis and Chloe includes some of his major pages. An orchestral deluge with Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra, which highlights all the instruments with virtuosity and vitality.
