The Staatskapelle Dresden’s New Year’s Eve concert has become a much-loved fixture in the musical calendar. This year’s event, starring Christian Thielemann, Renée Fleming and Klaus Florian Vogt, will be released on both CD and DVD.

Steeped in tradition, the Dresden Semperoper has welcomed many prestigious figures to its podium, from Carl Maria von Weber and Richard Wagner to the current Principal Conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden, Christian Thielemann – a forward-thinking musician, but one who also has a healthy respect for the past. The Semperoper’s New Year’s Eve concert is a highlight of the holiday season and the perfect way for music-lovers to see out the Old Year and welcome the New. Broadcast live on ZDF in Germany and relayed by Unitel Classica to 27 different countries, it’s become a much-loved part of the seasonal festivities, its popularity due in large part to the fact that Thielemann and his orchestra deliver a finely balanced mix of the festive and the nostalgic, with touches of downbeat Weltschmerz amid the whirling waltzes.

This year’s programme, entitled Tonight, will take the audience on a dazzling journey from Berlin to Broadway, showcasing all the dynamism and drama of twentieth-century musical theatre: from kings of operetta Paul Abraham, Robert Stolz and Paul Lincke to masters of the musical Frederick Loewe, George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein.

Thielemann will steer a course between operetta classics such as Two Hearts in Waltz Time and Flower of Hawaii, and Broadway hits such as “Maria” and “Tonight” from West Side Story, stopping off along the way to perform numbers from less well-known works such as Gershwin’s Strike Up The Band, a satire in which the US declares war on Switzerland over the price of cheese!

Sharing the stage with Thielemann this year are two of the greatest singers of our time, soprano Renée Fleming and tenor Klaus Florian Vogt – ideal choices as far as the conductor is concerned. “It’s wonderful to celebrate New Year’s Eve with friends,” he says. “I’ve worked with both of them many times and it’s always a delight, so I couldn’t ask for better company on the last night of the year.”

“The great thing about these operettas and musicals is that as well as the snappy rhythms and numbers in three-quarter time, there are always serious undertones too,” says Thielemann. “So yes, they’re perfect for a New Year’s Eve celebration, but because they’ve been part of the classical repertoire for so long now, they also give us a kind of timeless insight into human hearts and souls.”

The recording is a ZDF production in co-production with Unitel. Broadcast date: 31 December 2013, live on ZDF from 5.30pm (CET)

The Waldbühne in Berlin is one of Europe’s ideal outdoor amphitheatres. It is home to the Berlin Philharmonic’s summer concerts, which are among the most popular classical events in the world, attracting audiences of 20,000 or more people.

In July 2011 the orchestra, under the ebullient direction of Riccardo Chailly, presented this concert of effervescent works by Dmitri Shostakovich, Nino Rota and Ottorino Respighi.

All three composers possessed an unerring instinct for composing music that is guaranteed to please the ear of the listener. In their own individual ways, each of them powerfully demonstrates a phenomenal handling of tone colour. Their music sparkles with light one moment and lurks in the shadows the next.

Riccardo Chailly is famous for having one of the broadest repertoires in the business, ranging from the orchestral highways of Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner through to the 20th century byways via Bach, the core operatic repertoire and almost anything else - he is an omnivore, with the brilliance to match.

The extraordinary atmosphere of this Open Air venue is the imagination of this production. More than 20,000 people attended the yearly Open Air Concert of the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Waldbühne in Berlin. The atmosphere is as unique as the Night of the Proms Concert.

This is a full programme of musical showpieces and some of the most popular pieces of classical music like Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker, Mascagni Intermezzo, Paganini Il carnevale die Venezia and Sibelius Valse triste.

The famous violinist Vadim Repin is clearly happy to indulge, performing here with all the appropriate showmanship and artistry alongside the first-class Berliner Philharmoniker and Mariss Jansons. This isn´t only a production for core classical lovers – this is a night for a wide audience.

“Repin’s playing of the Paganini has to be watched to be believed, and the audience, quite justifiably, go wild at the end, causing him to repeat the piece, this time modified for even greater effect, enchanting all present including orchestra and conductor. " John Phillips, MusicWeb International
