Description

This concert is something special due to the presence of the superstar American soprano Deborah Voigt and the magnetic direction of English conductor Jeffrey Tate. "What he brings out in the orchestra scenes from "Twilight of the gods" is indeed "divine"," said one German critic. In fact, 'Divine' is the title of this CD/DVD release in which scenes from Gotterdammerung are preceded by Stravinsky's ballet Apollon Musagète.

The concerts of the Hamburger Symphoniker are always remarkable - director Daniel Kühnel and the renowned orchestra director Jeffrey Tate have made excellent - and enviable - names for themselves since the start of their cooperation in 2009 with their distinguished programming for the orchestra. And they follow unusual paths: in order to record this live concert in the Hamburg Laeiszhalle (in 2012) for the DVD, the Hamburger Symphoniker was the first German classical music organisation to partially finance it via crowdfunding, the new form of donation collection online.

The DVD contains 10 minutes of bonus material - 'Behind the Scenes' interviews with Deborah Voigt, Jeffrey Tate and others.

Personnel: Deborah Voigt (soprano), Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, Jeffrey Tate (conductor)
