Wagner on the piano
Stefan Mickisch, piano
Improvised Phantasy on Das Rheingold (with subtitles of the Leitmotiven)
The Wagnerian universe is condensed on Stefan Mickisch’s piano. Mickisch is the composer of this Improvised Fantasy on Das Rheingold. The opera’s Leitmotiven are intertwined in the hands of the pianist, who resorts to a technique commonly used during the nineteenth century to create a work featuring virtuosity and the evocation of well-known motives, which thus take on a new meaning.
