Notes & Reviews:

"Fired by inspiration the Dresden musicians and their leader offer a grandiose demonstration of their ability, their precision and their feeling for color and temperament ... A top orchestra and a top conductor have found one another," Die Welt. Under the direction of Maestro Thielemann, the Saechsische Staatskapelle Dresden performs a special Franz Liszt memorial concert at the Semperoper in Dresden to commemorate the 200th anniversary of one of the 19th century's greatest composers. A highly acclaimed Bayreuth Wagner Ring conductor, Thielemann is internationally known & admired as a specialist of Romantic music.

Christian Thielemann delivers a dramatic and impassioned performance of A Faust Symphony that goes beyond the ordinary through a pairing with Wagner's A Faust Overture ... Tenor Endrik Wottrich does a fine job with the vocal solos in the Liszt, and the Sächsischer Staatsopernchor Dresden gives the sort of intense and idiomatic performance that it seems to deliver all the time. Staatskapelle Dresden plays with brilliance and sensitivity, with the result that even the Wagner overture - which is not generally reckoned among his most effective works - comes through with striking power. This is a very impressive DVD ...
