Siegfried IdyllComposer: Wagner, Richard
Performance date: October 07, 1969

Date composed: 1870


Do you know anyone whose birthday falls on Christmas? Wagner did – his wife Cosima. The enchanting little Siegfried Idyll was the great composer’s present to his wife on her thirty-third birthday. It is made up of themes from one of his great four-hour operas (Siegfried) and was performed for Cosima as she awoke on that day in 1870 by an ensemble of musicians outside her bedroom. Lovely!
