Notes & Reviews:

An exciting and unique coupling of two orchestral masterpieces by two composers at the beginning of the 20th century! Both works are recorded here in their unusual, original versions. Innovative programs and a passionate commitment to the music of the 20th century have been Ingo Metzmacher's trademark since the beginning of his career. For more than 67 years the DSO Berlin has distinguished itself as one of Germany's leading orchestras. The number of renowned music directors, the scope and variety of its work, and its particular emphasis on modern and contemporary music makes the ensemble unique. Founded as the RIAS Symphony Orchestra in 1946, it was renamed the Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin in 1956 and has borne its current name since 1993.
