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.

This is top class music-making by one of the world's greatest orchestras and that is what shines through this entire enterprise. These players are quite different to those of Lucerne in that they do not come across as a group of soloists playing together so much as a coherent team playing as one. The silky smoothness of the strings is glorious to hear and the brass and wind sections manage to emulate that silkiness. One cannot imagine the works being better performed.

Thielemann Conducts Faust is an illuminating example of the gold hidden in two rarely heard concert pieces ... The solo instrumental work, the choral contribution, and, vocal contribution by tenor Endrik Wottrich are all outstanding. The Liszt symphony challenges all the forces and is carried off superbly. There is no BD competition but I think the bar has been raised to an awfully high level ... I would put this disc near the top of new releases both for the unusual program and the success of its realization.
