“Here is charm, wit and even kitsch alongside the spooky but never overdone drama. The recording is also first-rate in warmth, immediacy and clarity...the best all-round modern performance of the opera and a good nod towards the original-instrument version of this edition of the score we still need.”
BBC Music Award
“Janowski's conducting is crisp and fleet-footed, shaping the music naturally and fluently...”
International Recording Review
“It is astonishing that veteran Matti Salminen can still shine as Daland, his is the star voice here. Janowksi's conducting has a momentum and a sense of abstract theatre which can take the breath away.”
The concert performance of the opera "Der fliegende Holländer" in 2010 marks the beginning of the great cycle of Wagner, whose concerts earned the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, under the direction of Marek Janowski, the greatest recognition. Outstanding singers, a dynamic playing orchestra and a precise choir make this recording pure listening pleasure, which works without the stage completely unadulterated.
