About

Riccardo Chailly in Leipzig - a must-have for all Chailly fans. Including Riccardo Chailly’s legendary inaugural concert as Kapellmeister in Leipzig. Capturing the atmosphere of a unique musical occasion, the concert is a real Mendelssohn-feast played by the orchestra founded by this very composer. Beautiful romantic repertoire (Mendelssohn, Schumann) combined with stellar soloists. Featuring Martha Argerich playing Schumann’s Piano Concerto.

The DVD set includes the Petite Messe Solennelle by Rossini and a colourful staging of Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera from the Leipzig Opera. Stage director Ermanno Olmi is best known for his exceptional work in Italian cinema. His films (The Legend of the Holy Drinker, The Tree of Wooden Clogs) possess a profound beauty rarely seen in contemporary film.
