About the Concert

It was Arturo Toscanini himself who founded the Filarmonica bearing his name and thus laid the foundation for one of the most renowned Italian orchestras. The legendary conductor, who cultivated a friendship with the Kapellmeister of the Sächsische Staatskapelle, Fritz Busch, occasionally dropped by Dresden for a detour. So it is all the nicer that "his" orchestra is now a guest in the city on the Elbe. Alongside the overtures to Verdi's "Macbeth" and Wagner's "Lohengrin", contrasting creations by Schnittke and Tchaikovsky will be heard. Soloist of the cello concerto, conceived by Schnittke in fragile sounds, is Jan Vogler. "I am prouder of it than of any of my other compositions," Tchaikovsky said of his last symphony in B minor, which will conclude this exciting concert evening.
