Dresdner Philharmonie Poster


Principal Conductor: Michael Sanderling
Violin: Julia Fischer

Dresden had an important place in Wagner's early career. It was there that he was employed as a Court Kapellmeister, staging The Flying Dutchman and Tannhäuser before rashly siding with revolutionaries and escaping into exile in Switzerland. Appearing in Hong Kong for the first time and under the baton of its Principal Conductor Michael Sanderling, the Dresdner Philharmonie opens its two Hong Kong programmes with tributes to Wagner, the famous Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde, with its plot of love and betrayal, ending with Isolde's love-death, as Tristan, her lover, dies.

The second programme starts with the Prelude to Act III from Wagner's Lohengrin, conceived in Dresden, but first performed after Wagner's escape from the city by Liszt in Weimar. Joining the orchestra in these two concerts is the young German violinist Julia Fischer, a star who has taken the world by storm with her consummate musicianship and impeccable technique. Fischer is the soloist in the concertos of Dvořák and of Brahms. The two concerts also feature two classics of the German symphonic repertoire, Brahms's Symphony No. 4 and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7.

Dresdner Philharmonie
Founded in 1870, Dresdner Philharmonie marked the 143rd anniversary of its founding. The orchestra has worked with the most eminent conductors in each historical period since its founding.

The Dresdner Philharmonie gained worldwide fame in the 1930s, with much credit going to the leadership of Paul van Kempen. This in turn attracted the great conductors of the time to appear in concert with the Philharmonie, including Arthur Nikisch, Hermann Abendroth, Hans Knappertsbusch, Fritz Busch, Erich Kleiber and Joseph Keilberth. The work of Heinz Bongartz as Principal Conductor was essential in rebuilding the Philharmonie in the years following World War II.

Internationally acclaimed conductors including Kurt Masur, Michel Plasson and Marek Janowski also served as Principal Conductor of the Dresdner Philharmonie. For the 2003/04 season Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos was named Principal Guest Conductor and a year later became Principal Conductor. His experience conducting the best orchestras in the world and his personal charisma led to a highly successful partnership with the orchestra, both concerts performed in Dresden, on tour and in the international music recording industry. Since beginning of the season 2011/12 Michael Sanderling has become Principal Conductor.

Michael Sanderling
Born and educated in Berlin, Michael Sanderling is one of the most promising conductors of his generation. His 2005 debut conducting the Dresdner Philharmonie marked the beginning of regular and close artistic collaboration with the tradition-steeped orchestra. From the beginning of the 2011/12 concert season Sanderling has been named Principal Conductor of the Dresdner Philharmonie.

Sanderling has worked with many leading international orchestras including the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Münchner Philharmoniker, the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart, the Gürzenich Orchester Köln and the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest. His conducting of Sergei Prokofiev's War and Peace at the Cologne Opera was met with the highest acclaim from press and public alike.

As Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the Kammerakademie Potsdam, from 2006 to 2010 Sanderling performed at international concert venues and recorded several CDs with the ensemble. In 2010 he founded Skyline Symphony in Frankfurt - a collaboration of Europe's leading orchestra players who join together in performing special classical music concerts on the campus of the Goethe University geared to younger audiences in an easily accessible setting free of formal convention.

Sanderling's early musical training was on the cello. After successfully participating as a cellist in several competitions and when he was only 19, Sanderling was engaged by Kurt Masur as Principal Cellist with the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester. Sanderling was subsequently also Principal Cellist of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin for many years. He has made guest appearances as a cello soloist with top-flight orchestras throughout Europe and the United States, including the Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Orchestre de Paris and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
