One of Mozarts popular symphonies and Wagners beautiful Siegfried Idyll, interpreted by the young conductor Eun Sun Kim.

It is a great pleasure to have the young South-Korean conductor back to Bergen short time after her success with the Bergen National Opera’s Madama Butterfly. She starts and ends the concert with Mozart; first, the overture to the opera Mitridate, re di Ponto, which Mozart composed at 14 years old. She concludes with his second last symphony from 1788, perhaps his most loved symphony.

Wagner composed his symphonic poem, one of his very few non-operatic works, as a gift to his wife Cosima. On Christmas Day 1870 she woke to the tunes of the Siegfried Idyll, performed by her husband and a small ensemble gathered in the staircase of the house.
