Lucerne Festival Easter 2014 with R. Wagner

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra | Bavarian Radio Choir (Michael Alber Chorus Master ) | Andris Nelsons conductor | Simon O'Neill Parsifal | Georg Zeppenfeld Gurnemanz | Tomasz Konieczny Amfortas

Richard Wagner [masked])
Parsifal. Concert performance of Act Three
Richard Wagner’s last work – Parsifal, which he called a “festival play for the consecration of a stage” – celebrates Christianity as mythology. In the healing “Good Friday Spell” in the third act, pantheistic moments even come into play, along with the Romantic worship of nature in the tradition of the poet Joseph von Eichendorff. But it’s above all music itself that Wagner celebrates as a kind of religion. He even had an exclusive “temple” build on the Green Hill in Bayreuth in which to have his own creations for the stage produced: it was here that Parsifal was to be premiered – this was in any event Wagner’s desire. The work pays homage to his mystical ideal of an invisible theater. Since Wagner considered music a nocturnal, secret art, there is little here to actually see – but everything for the ear to discover. “Parsifal is the awakening of the modern orchestra to itself,” declares Andris Nelsons, who has had great success in Bayreuth conducting Lohengrin, “as though with his final music drama Wagner freed himself from all outward appearances.”
