Mixed Up Class Playlist, August 21, 2000

The BBC Proms series representative piece this week is from Prom 53, Richard Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder, poetry written by Mathilde Wesendonck, the wife of his patron at the time he was setting Tristan und Isolde to music. Accordingly, the August 28 edition of Mixed Up Class contains a selection from Tristan.

We commemorate the birth of Claude Debussy (August 22, 1862) with his infrequently performed String quartet in G minor.
