Sublime Staatskapelle Dresden when Stefan Lano Conducts
Semper Oper Dresden / Staatskapelle Dresden
What was opulent for the eye was equally so for the ear. There are outstanding musicians at work here, and when Stefan Lano conducts the Staatskapelle Dresden, the sound is simply sublime: wonderful balance within the orchestra and between orchestra and stage; a clear enjoyment in creating unusual orchestral effects; and a complete artistic commitment crowned with chamber music-like finesse.
