Notes & Reviews:

"It is the rare and happy occasion that a collector finds such a treasure trove as this. In this the thirteenth volume of Gunter Hanssler's ongoing series of recordings from the archives of Dresden's magnificent Staatskapelle, we have been given a gift of the highest artistic and historical value. Restored in magnificent and reverberant sound, we are fortunate to have four works conducted by a young Karl Bohm recorded at the height of his relationships to both Pfitzner and Strauss. We are also treated to a rare find indeed, the sounds, via the Festive Prelude, of the great Silbermann organ of the Frauenkirche, tragically destroyed in the fire bombing of Dresden in 1945... This exemplary production is rounded off by beautiful presentation and detailed, informative and very readable program notes. This is a recording not to be missed, either by serious collectors or by the merely curious. It is a glorious reflection of a bygone era, a time in which art and beauty held much more value than they do today." -MusicWeb (Disc of the Month)
