Happy constellation for the opening of the season

When Christian Thielemann and »his« Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden open the season with Bruckner's Fifth, this constellation is not only particularly fortunate, but also extraordinarily relational: the first performance of the original version of this monumental work, composed as early as the 1870s - the most extensive symphony since Beethoven's Ninth and probably Bruckner's most personal composition - in the Vienna Konzerthaus was given in 1936 by the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of its then principal conductor Siegmund von Hausegger. Only the year before, the original score edited by Robert Haas had appeared - the edition that Thielemann also uses today - and was premiered by Hausegger and his Munich orchestra. It was the same orchestra with which Thielemann celebrated his debut as principal conductor (and Hausegger's seventh successor) almost seven decades later with Bruckner's Fifth; the resulting live recording is considered as legendary as it is controversial. And the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, of which Thielemann is now the principal conductor, enjoys the reputation of being an exemplary orchestra when it comes to Bruckner.
