Wagner & Messiaen


James Gaffigan leads a chamber orchestra in Takemitsu’s mesmerizing early-1980s work Rain Coming and Wagner’s iconic Siegfried Idyll (scored for 13 players), which the composer wrote as a birthday gift to his second wife, Cosima, following the birth of their son, Siegfried. The program also includes Messiaen’s transcendent Quartet for the End of Time, written during World War II (while the composer was being held in captivity) and performed here by pianist Gilles Vonsattel, violinist Leila Josefowicz (in her Festival debut), cellist Peter Wiley, and clarinetist Ricardo Morales.
