With brass blaring and strings soaring, James Conlon trailblazes an epic journey through high points of the opera that caps Wagner’s Ring Cycle. The last time the legendary Wagnerian soprano Christine Goerke joined the BSO to channel the fearsome Brünnhilde, “Her voice didn’t just soar above the orchestra; she drew them up to meet it.” (The Washington Post) The terse, wordless drama of Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony raises the curtain on this monumental program.
