Concerto Köln delves into Wagner again

Just as in Das Rheingold, the conductor and orchestra for Die Walküre searched for an orchestral sound and a text interpretation that corresponded with the means and views of Wagner's time. This is in good hands at the renowned Concerto Köln, supplemented with special musicians and soloists.

The most popular part of Der Ring des Nibelungen

Of the four parts of the Ring, Die Walküre is the most popular, especially because here we are introduced to the passionate love of Siegmund and Sieglinde, an unfortunate twin couple who will eventually give birth to the hero Siegfried, although they will both die for it. The opera also contains, by far, the best-known melody of the Ring, the martial Valkyrie ride at the beginning of the third act. Die Walküre premiered in Munich in 1870, together with Das Rheingold, at the insistence of King Ludwig II, an ardent Wagnerian. Six years later, in 1876, the composer performed the entire tetralogy in Bayreuth.
