Wagner: Lohengrin

Wagner: Lohengrin


Piotr Beczała (Lohengrin), Anna Netrebko (Elsa von Brabant), Tomasz Konieczny (Friedrich von Telramund), Evelyn Herlitzius (Ortrud), Georg Zeppenfeld (Heinrich der Vogler), Derek Welton (Der Heerrufer des Königs)

Staatskapelle Dresden, Sächsischer Staatsopernchor Dresden, Christian Thielemann

An operatic dream came true in May 2016, when two singers made their role debuts as Lohengrin and Elsa at the Dresden State Opera.

Previously at home in French and Italian lyric tenor roles, Piotr Beczala was expanding his repertory in a direction that many opera fans had long wanted him to explore, while Anna Netrebko – previously hailed as the “queen of bel canto” – was undertaking her first Wagnerian role. It was also her first foray into the lyric-dramatic repertory.

Both singers had been persuaded to take on their new roles by the Dresden Staatskapelle’s principal conductor, Christian Thielemann, one of the leading Wagner conductors of our day.

Seldom has the world of opera been as excited as it was by these performances, public and press revealing a rare unanimity in hailing them as outstanding. Die Presse spoke of a “starry occasion”, while Die Welt described it as “musically one of the finest Lohengrins of all time – a Lohen-Dream”. This punning was evidently catching, for the Münchner Merkur attempted a conflation of the German terms for swan (Schwan) and madness (Wahnsinn) and produced the portmanteau word Schwahnsinn. A substantial part in the production’s success was played by Georg Zeppenfeld as King Henry, Evelyn Herlitzius as Ortrud, Tomasz Konieczny as Telramund, Derek Welton as the Herald and the Dresden State Opera Chorus. Together they formed a Wagner ensemble so splendid that – in the words of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung – “none better could currently be wished for”.

“The cast are good to look at on camera and are no slouches as actors - but the main interest of the release remains musical...Netrebko brings a sensuality and an outraged awareness of how this woman is exploited not that common in Elsas, and the role lies well for her vocally at the moment...Beczała also sounds here to have an ideal weight of voice and a cunning balance between dreamy lyrical and heroic.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2017

Bruckner:

Symphony No. 4 in Eb Major 'Romantic'


Even when Dresden lay in ruins after the Second World War, Bruckner was performed. Between 1945 and 1950, the young GMD Joseph Keilberth conducted what may have been the first complete cycle of all “original” Bruckner symphonies. 1946 brought the first performance of the Third Symphony in its original version: late in the day, the Staatskapelle gained the status of a Bruckner premiere orchestra (illustrated by the 2008 recording of this version with Yannick Nézet-Séguin: Edition Staatskapelle Dresden, Volume 39). The Bruckner tradition is alive today within the Staatskapelle Dresden. It is documented in recent times by the now legendary complete recording of Bruckner’s symphonies under Eugen Jochum between 1975 and 1980, concerts and recordings under Giuseppe Sinopoli and Bernard Haitink and the current Bruckner cycle under Principal Conductor Christian Thielemann.

“Thielemann’s interpretation, spacious and unaffected, has a commanding strength and inner purpose, and the playing of the Dresden Staatskapelle seems even more cultivated than on the [earlier] video recording” Gramophone Magazine, August 2017

Verdi: Otello

Verdi: Otello

Osterfestspiele Salzburg, Großes Festspielhaus, March 2016


José Cura (Otello), Dorothea Röschmann (Desdemona), Carlos Álvarez (Iago), Benjamin Bernheim (Cassio), Christa Mayer (Emilia), Georg Zeppenfeld (Lodovico), Csaba Szegedi (Montano), Gordon Bintner (Herald)

Staatskapelle Dresden, Christian Thielemann

Staged by Vincent Boussard

A superb new Otello from the Salzburg Easter Festival: ‘Cura is a commanding Otello with his richly coloured tenor and both fragile delicacy and fiery ardour’ (Südwestpresse). ‘Röschmann as Desdemona guarantees effortless perfection’ (Neue Musikzeitung). ‘Álvarez as Iago would be hard to surpass’ (Abendzeitung). This Salzburg production – featuring ‘a cast worthy of any festival’ (Südwestpresse) – is conducted by Christian Thielemann, who displays a command of Verdian tragedy to match his celebrated sovereignty in Wagner. He and his great Dresden Staatskapelle, a consummate opera ensemble, ‘achieve wonders’ (Die Presse), ‘generating Italian ‘Musikdrama’ with their incandescence and precise nuances’ (Abendzeitung). In his fascinating staging, director Vincent Broussard integrates video with set and lighting design to create an idealised visual context for what he calls Otello’s ‘conflict of ancient and modern, of 2D and 3D’.

“Cura’s Otello is in pretty good shape – he’s been singing the role for nearly two decades now – and his tenor can still deliver plenty of thrills…[Röschmann’s] is a moving, unusually feisty account of [Desdemona]. Benjamin Bernheim is an excellent Cassio, and Georg Zeppenfeld stands out for his resonant Lodovico…Thielemann certainly offers an interpretation of imposing grandeur and sonic richness. But it’s not a reading that ever truly gets its hands dirty.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2017

Bruckner: Symphony No. 6 in A major

Semperoper Dresden, September 2015


Since taking up his post as principal conductor of the Dresden Staatskapelle in 2012, Christian Thielemann has launc hed each new concert season with a Bruckner symphony. In autumn 2015 he chose the Sixth for the opening concert at Dresden’s historic Semperoper, and for the Sächsische Zeitung this performance marked 'another Bruckner triumph for Dresden'. Thielemann once more 'conjured up the most magical of sonorities' and 'the orchestra played magnificently under him' (Der Neue Merker).

“…the playing of the Staatskapelle Dresden is everything one could wish for, both on a soloistic level and as an ensemble unified in a common goal. Melodic lines and inner voices are beautifully articulated, and the blending of the brass is an art form in itself.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2017

“The film presentation is traditional: this is a straightforward film of a concert performance, blessedly free of any gimmickry. The pictures are sharp and always relevant to what we are hearing. The Blu-ray sound is excellent. In every respect this is a very distinguished account of Bruckner’s Sixth.” MusicWeb International, 17th April 2017
