Staatskapelle Dresden Tours America

The Staatskapelle Dresden, one of the greatest orchestras in the world, will begin a tour of nine cities as part of their West and East Coast visit of the North America. The distinguished British conductor Daniel Harding will lead this 450 plus year old grand orchestral traditions in a program by the German Romantic and Classical Composers Schumann, Beethoven and Brahms. Viennese super star pianist Rudolf Buchbinder will serve as soloist in this thrilling program. New Yorker's are in for a special treat as Deborah Voigt will perform Beethoven's challenging aria "Ah! Perfido"

Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden
Founded: September 22, 1548 - Dresden, Germany
Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden (The Dresden State Orchestra of Saxony) celebrated its 450th Anniversary on 22. September 1998. Founded in 1548 by Elector Moritz of Saxony, it is not only one of the oldest orchestras
in the world and most rich in tradition, but it may well be the only one which has continuously played for more than four and a half centuries and which at the same time has always been one of the leading orchestras during
various epochs. Heinrich Schütz already knew in the middle of the 17th century that it may shine forth and be praised as a light among Protestant chapels. Jean Jacques Rousseau characterised the orchestra as “...the
one with the most balanced forces and the most perfect ensemble”. In 1823, in one of Beethoven’s conversation booklets is stated: “It is generally said that the Dresden Hofkapelle is the best orchestra in Europe.” For Richard
Wagner it was a “miraculous harp”, and Richard Strauss called it “the best opera orchestra in the world.” Seiji Ozawa, after recording “Salome” in 1991, said, “ This orchestra is a dream”, and for Sir Colin Davis it is “the
most individual orchestra”.
