Discovering Music: Wagner Gala

Bristol Ensemble conductor Jonathan James hosts this popular series of talks that dig deeper into the themes and ideas behind the music.

In an entertaining and incisive style, Jonathan explores and uncovers the musical building blocks of each programme, putting the music performed into historical and social context.

Today Jonathan will explore the programme from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Wagner Gala.
