Programme Notes

Siegfried Interlude No. 2 was commissioned by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra for first performance at the launch of their 2000 Season. It uses some of the themes from Act II of Wagner’s Siegfried, including Siegfried’s “Nothung” cries and the woodbird’s theme. It can perhaps best be described as Siegfried meets Purple Haze.
