A love-letter to a much missed audience

Andrew Staples has made a film Wagner's Siegfried Idyll with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and conductor Daniel Harding. Filmed at the orchestras home, Berwaldhallen in Stockholm, Staples has  imagined the piece as a love letter with a twist - this time not from a composer to his wife but instead from the players of the orchestra to their much-missed absent audience.

This is the third film projected created by Berwaldhallen with Staples, Harding and the orchestra, in June 2020 they filmed Mozart's Don Giovanni [available on-demand], and at Easter this year Bach's St John Passion [see my A Life On-Line column]

The film is available on the Berwaldhallen website.
