Album Summary

>Schoenberg, Arnold : Pelleas und Melisande, symphonic poem, Op. 5
>Wagner, Richard : Siegfried Idyll
Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

It is the late Romantic repertoire that has long been Christian Thielemann's principal and most congenial field of activity: composers such as Wagner, Strauss, Schoenberg and Pfitzner. "Pelleas und Melisande" marks both the high point and turning point in Schoenberg's tonal period, with tonality taken to its very limits. The orchestra of the German Opera, Berlin under Thielemann deliver a stirring performance, and an exquisite "Siegfried Idyll" concludes the album perfectly.
