    Gurrelieder is a tale of a love that even death cannot vanquish, of rage against the heavens, and ultimately of consolation in a closing musical sunrise of unparalleled beauty.

    What started out as a modest song-cycle grew into one of the most opulent musical giants of the 20th century – a cantata of Wagnerian ambition and proportions.

    The LSO and its Music Director Designate Sir Simon Rattle are joined by an outstanding line-up of soloists.
