The Staatskapelle Dresden and its Chief Conductor Christian Thielemann open with Beethoven’s sublime Violin Concerto, in the sure hands of Nikolaj Znaider.
After the interval this famously rich-toned orchestra digs into Max Reger’s affectionate and beautifully orchestrated Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Mozart and finally Richard Strauss’s witty and abrasive depiction of an impish figure from German folklore, his outlandish tone-poem telling of ‘Till Eulenspiegel’s merry pranks’.
