Dresdner Musikfestspiele 2016 final (June 2016)
Vom 5 May unti 5 Jun 2016 this year’s Dresdner Musikfestspiele took place under the artistic direction of Jan Vogler.
The cellist himself framed the festival by his performance at the opening concert on 6 May with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andris Nelsons and also by the final concert with the Festival Orchestra and conductor Ivor Bolton on 5 June. In Semperoper Dresden he played Schumann’s cello concerto.
The press says about the final concert:
Vogler, who has made a tremendous job as festival director focussed on expressivity and attack without any compromise. He stormed playfully up the burning hill: Jan, the Cello Husar – who would have thought? The rest is anticipation – again in 2017.” (Sächsische Zeitung, 6 June 2016)
