Performance:   Sonics:    
This one was a complete surprise. Of course, the Staatskapelle is a great orchestra, and Fabio Luisi a very good conductor. But to get from them one of the best recordings of Don Quixote is rather unexpected.
Jan Vogler, a cellist new to me has a lovely tone. He favours the leaner sound that is much in vogue today. But this makes his reading all the more flexible. Much detail is to be heard from his lyrical reading, that evokes so well the story of the crazy Don Quxote.
The Orchestra under Luisi play like Gods. Of course R.Strauss is in their blood, but rarely this music has sounded so vivid and with so much presence. It has a tactile, immediate quality to it. Luisi, who is great in italian opera, is fast developing into a great conductor in German repertoire.
Sony, who up to now has released Multichannel only SACD´s, releases here a Hybrid SACD that has a superb sound. Spatious, taking full advantage of the famous Lukaskirche accoustics in Dresden.
A real winner.
