WPAS: Dresden Staatskapelle Presented by Washington Performing Arts Society Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 8:00 PM Music Center at Strathmore
Christian Thielemann, music director Lisa Batiashvili, violin
A leading orchestra throughout numerous musical eras, the Dresden Staatskapelle has been in continuous existence for over four and a half centuries. Led by new music director Christian Thielemann (in his D.C. debut) and joined for a rare U.S. performance by Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili, the orchestra demonstrates "gorgeous, glowing sounds of the string section and seamless phrasing of strings and winds" (The New York Times).
This concert will run approximately 130 minutes with intermission.
