Today’s Music for a Lovely Sunday Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman

Woof, woof, my friends! Years ago, I really liked Wagner. Even, I listened to The Ring of the Nibelung in just two days! Maybe I have changed my mind in these days and I prefer now more baroque compositions but I must confess that Richard Wagner definitely changed something in music and he is, for many reasons, one of the most influential composers in the history of music. His leitmotifs, his structures, his particular sense of mixing music and scenarios, his very personal and extreme chromaticism… everything in Wagner is different and classical at the same time.

We all remember Tristan und Isolde, the March of the Valkyries from The Ring of the Nibelung…. but today we are going to try something different, The Flying Dutchman (Der fliegende Holländer). This version is conducted by Otto Klemperer for the BBC Chorus & New Philharmonia Orchestra. It was recorded in 1968

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
