Notes and Editorial Reviews

Edo de Waart is Chief Conductor of the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Music Director of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and Conductor Laureate of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra. As an opera conductor, de Waart has enjoyed success in a large and varied repertoire in many of the world’s greatest opera houses. The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (RFO) has a prominent place in the Dutch music scene. Its inexhaustible commitment to the highest artistic quality and a balanced program qualifies the RFO as one of the best orchestras in the Netherlands. This disc is focused on Wagner’s early Symphony in C, a rarely recorded work. Written and published in 1832, the Symphony has a Beethovenian touch and was lavishly praised by Read more Robert Schumann. The release is completed by two popular pieces: excerpts from Tristan and Isolde (including a Nachtgesang arranged for orchestra by composer Henk de Vlieger), and the sweet Siegfried Idyll.
