Viva la Liberta!
A mix of Wagnery, Mozarty and Haydny stuff, previewing Tony Palmer's new film about the Wagner family which screens on Sunday, and culminating, after a circuitous route via Kings Place, in Furtwangler conducting the end of part I of Don Giovanni at the Salzburg Festival in 1950. Worth a listen! http://standpointmag.co.uk/node/2135
