Notes & Reviews:

This recording of the colossal 1998 festival concert celebrating the 450th anniversary of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden at the Semper Opera House is accompanied by a wealth of historical detail. The programmed pieces were all played for the first time by the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, under the direction of Giuseppe Sinopoli. Heading the lineup are the "Alpensinfonie" by Richard Strauss, the overture from Richard Wagner's "Rienzi" and Antonio Vivaldi's "Concerto di Dresda."
