Korngold's "Die tote Stadt" - A Transparent Wonder led by Stefan Lano
Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires
» All reviews
(...) The most resonant applause on the evening of the Premier went to Stefan Lano and the Orquesta Estable of the Teatro Colon who transformed this score with its Wagnerian density into a transparent wonder, which took us from Straussiana to Hollywood-like grandiloquence. An immense organism, this orchestration: with seven percussionists and an array of supplementary instruments. The devotion with which they performed and Lano conducted was palpable throughout the Colon. Lano is a conductor who possesses an authentic command and mastery of the repertoire of this soon-to-end century.
