A brilliant composition which is actually a prelude to Richard Wagner’s Lohengrin opera first performed in 1850; performed here by Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra/conducted by Simon Rattle . The slow/trickling evolution of the composition begins with 4 solo violins, then gently other instruments are intricately weaved into the theme in such a delightful way that you hardly notice. It is the kind of music that once you start listening to the introduction you cannot help but wanting to explore it through to the end. I truly hope you enjoy this piece as much as I have this being my first time listening to it 🙂
