Andris Nelsons is considered one of the outstanding interpreters of Richard Wagner, and he will conduct a new production of Parsifal at the Bayreuth Festival in the summer of 2016. In advance, he is presenting the prelude and the Karfreitagszauber to the Berliner Philharmoniker audience. This will be followed by Anton Bruckner’s Third Symphony, dedicated to Wagner “with the most profound respect”, in which Bruckner’s individual sound, inspired by the organ, unfolds its full potential for the first time.
