Browse: Edition Staatskapelle Dresden (series)
The ”Edition Staatskapelle Dresden” launched in autumn 2005 is expanding in leaps and bounds. Volume 20, a breathtaking live concert recording of Berlioz's Requiem in Dresden's Kreuzkirche conducted by Sir Colin Davis, was launched at a Semperoper press discussion which took place in the opera house foyer on April 24, 2007.
Sir Colin Davis, who will be celebrating his eightieth birthday this year, was there in person and was presented with the very first CD. The CD samples necessary for such a press event had been delivered to the Dresden opera house only a few minutes earlier by overnight courier from the CD manufacturing plant.
