From a single note, Wagner’s colossal Ring of the Nibelungs creates a universe, weaving a timeless myth of love, greed, power and redemption. We don’t have time for the whole thing in this concert, but in this hour-long “orchestral adventure”, The Ring emerges as one of the 19th century’s mightiest symphonies, especially in the hands of a conductor like Antony Hermus who has a deep kinship with Romantic music. It’s impossible to follow that, but the uproarious suite from Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre is an inspired prelude, coupled here with an early Haydn symphony that unleashes a world of emotion without wasting a note.
