Andris Nelsons seems to draw the best from every orchestra he works with, wrote The New York Times and now this outstanding interpreter of Richard Wagner will conduct a new production of Parsifal at the Bayreuth Festival in the summer of 2016. In advance, he presents the Prelude and the Karfreitagszauber to the audiences of the Berlin Philharmonic. This will be followed by Anton Bruckners heroic Third Symphony, dedicated to Wagner with the most profound respect, in which Bruckners unique sound, inspired by the organ, unfolds its full and majestic potential for the first time.
