Christian Thielemann's debut perfomance with his new orchestra, the Staatskapelle Dresden, is an unqualified success. This recording comes hard on the heels of Thielemann’s previous Blu-ray issue of the Bruckner Symphony No. 7 with his former orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic, and one that included the Bruckner Symphony No. 4. Visually and sonically, this one is heads above its predecessor, and gives us a chance to hear a vocal superstar in the autumn of her career. The Wolf and Strauss songs sound simply made for Ms. Fleming’s voice, and, while I prefer the intimacy of piano rather than orchestral accompaniment, these re-workings make a legitimate case for themselves when so well played and directed.
Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 in E major (WAB 107) is one of his best-known symphonies. It was written between 1881 and 1883 and was revised in 1885. It is dedicated to Ludwig II of Bavaria. The premiere, given under Arthur Nikisch and the Gewandhaus Orchestra in the opera house at Leipzig on 30 December 1884, brought Bruckner the greatest success he had known in his life. The symphony is sometimes referred to as the "Lyric", though the appellation is not the composer's own, and is seldom used.
