Dresden Staatskapelle

In existence for over four and a half centuries, the Dresden Staatskapelle remains one of the leading European orchestras. Led by Daniel Harding and joined by Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder, the orchestra demonstrates "gorgeous, glowing sounds of the string section and seamless phrasing of strings and winds" (The New York Times).  This is a program not to be missed!
