In Beethoven’s cheerful Pastoral symphony, a storm brings refreshment to the idyllic countryside. In the First Act of Richard Wagner’s opera Die Walküre, a storm provides the backdrop for a furious, forbidden passion. The contrast brings a fascinating richness to this remarkable concert event, celebrating masterpieces by two towering geniuses of the German musical heritage. The soloists include the young American soprano Meagan Miller.
