Munich diesels into Westwood


Munich on Idyll.

Wagner's sensual Siegfried Idyll tops a program at UCLALive! tomorrow night at Royce Hall at 8 p.m., performed by Munich's fabled Symphony Orchestra. Written for Cosima Wagner to celebrate the birth of their son Siegfried, the Idyll is also derived from music intended for inclusion in Wagner's opera of the same name.

Also on the program are Beethoven's Piano Concerto no. 1 in C major, Anton Webern's string-happy Fünf Sätze, and and Mendelssohn's rollicking Italian Symphony.

As usual, we'll review the concert at LA Opus.
