Notes and Editorial Reviews

This selection is a Hybrid Multichannel Super Audio CD. The Stereo Hybrid SACD program can be played on any standard compact disc player. The DSD Surround and Stereo programs require an SACD player for playback.

"Silvio Varviso's performances on the Wagner program are all good ones. The conductor and the Dresden musicians obviously understand the meaning of the complete works these often-heard Overtures and Preludes represent...The best performance (and sonics) on this disc isn't noted on the front cover — Richard Schumacher's Siegfried Idyll. The chamber scale here is exactly right; the mood is tender and untroubled, as the music is never pushed too hard. The recording is much more immediate than for Varviso's material,
Read more with lovely instrumental timbres."
