The world-known Wagner interpreter and music pedagogue Richard Trimborn completed his work on Act II of Tristan und Isolde by Wagner at Sofia Opera with a presentation of fragments from the opera. In the hall of our first opera theatre were present adults, as well as children tempted by music.
The consecutive Wagner journey with examples from the process of musical preparation by maestro Trimborn included performances from Act II of Wagner’s work. They were presented by the soloists Radostina Nikolaeva, Martin Iliev, Tsveta Sarambelieva, Angel Hristov, Petar Buchkov, Veselin Mihaylov and Biser Georgiev.
After the words of maestro Trimborn Tristan und Isolde gives maybe at the greatest extent expression of the composer’s personality. Figuratively speaking, both his faces are incorporated by the leading characters in this opera and some at first sight illogical actions of theirs assume a clearer sense if watched from this aspect.
The musical preparation of the next Wagner work will continue till 26 February 2015, the date of its premiere. During the visit of maestro Trimborn in our country in May, however, his work with the soloists will be concentrated on the second performance of the tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen of the director Plamen Kartaloff. It will take place between 23 and 29 July with guest-conductor the world-known Kazushi Ono. Audience from Germany, Austria, Great Britain and other European countries has already bought tickets for the spectacles. The reports of the leading musical editions about the Sofia production of Der Ring presented in 2013 are exceptionally positive and full with big talk.
