Korngold's "Die tote Stadt" led by Stefan Lano
Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires
(...) This version of the Komgold opera distinguished itself, above all, in the orchestral plane. In his fourth presentation in the Teatro Colon, the Swiss-American conductor, Stefan Lano rendered a performance of the highest level, both from the technical as well as expressive standpoint He is well-acquainted with this seldom-performed work from having prepared it during his years as a pianist at the Vienna State Opera. He offered on this occasion, a seamless version of the opera in which the orchestra truly soared while maintaining perfect balance and permanent dramatic tension.
