Notes & Reviews:

The timeless theme of love stands at the center of the Dresden Philharmonic's first concert of the season with its new Principal Conductor Michael Sanderling. The live recording of the concert now being released on the GENUIN label begins with Pelléas et Mélisandeby Gabriel Fauré. Selections from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet bring the program's theme of star-crossed lovers full circle. Elements of Italian folk music repeatedly shine through in Tchaikovsky's brilliantly orchestrated Capriccio italien. Based on the model of his older Russian colleague, Glinka, Tchaikovsky's rendering is brimming over with new and original thoughts, which capriciously dance from one theme to the next and, after all manner of transformations, culminate in a rollicking finale.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The FaurT is a low-key way to start the program. The music is mostly quiet and lyrical, but Sanderling imparts plenty of character and expressive nuance to it. The string playing at the beginning of the Tchaikovsky is also particularly expressive - and very well recorded - eventually leading to a closing tarantella that's genuinely dance-like and not a noisy scramble for the finish line. The orchestra is fully up to the demands of this miniature "concerto for orchestra."
