Jonas Kaufmann (tenor), Sachsischer Staatsopernchor Dresden, Staatskapelle Dresden, Christian Thielemann (conductor)

In memory of Richard Wagner and mindful of their own great tradition of performing his music, the Staatskapelle Dresden staged this glittering gala concert in the Semperoper on the eve of the composer's bicentenary in 2013. They were directed by their principal conductor Christian Thielemann, indisputably one of the great Wagner conductors of our time, who was joined by the fastest-rising young heroic tenor of recent years, Jonas Kaufmann. The program features the overtures to the Wagner operas written and premiered in Dresden - Rienzi (1842), The Flying Dutchman (1843) and Tannhauser (1845) - as well as great tenor scenes from Rienzi, Tannhauser and Lohengrin. 'Star tenor Jonas Kaufmann was celebrated with bravos and tumultuous applause - as were the musicians and Thielemann.' (Focus)
