About

Dresden in April 1935 - in the large auditorium of the Semperoper there is a lot of activity during the day. What's happening? Microphone stands are set up, the seats in the ranks are covered with fabric blankets, sound-absorbing screens are installed, cables are laid, stripping is pulled, and cutting machines are set up in a side box ......

... Karl Böhm, Chief Conductor of the traditional Staatskapelle Dresden for a year now, is considered a new potential driving force in the record market - and the orchestra itself - according to the management's plan - will also be highlighted in the future.

The recordings of the Shellac era: – a fabulous live experience! They are a rare example of honest, vital music-making, in a way that today’s “live” recordings cannot replicate: “live” in this era of high-end digital technology means – with very few exceptions – always having the opportunity of mixing takes from a final rehearsal, the actual live recording of a concert plus any post-concert additional recording for the purposes of correction, which is inevitably a form of manipulation.
