Under the direction of romantic-music specialist Christian Thielemann,
the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden performs a special Franz Liszt
memorial concert at the Semperoper in Dresden to commemorate the
200th anniversary year of one of the 19th century's greatest composers.
The "Faust"-themed concert opens with the Overture to "Faust" in D
minor by Richard Wagner, who was Liszt's son-in-law, before leading
into Franz Liszt's symphonic masterpiece "A Faust Symphony". "A top
orchestra and a top conductor have found one another" (Die Welt).
