Latest Acclaim

Karlsruhe has a distinguished Wagner tradition, and indeed the conductor of Parsifal’s premiere, Hermann Levi, was once in charge here. His current succesor as Generalmusikdirektor, Justin Brown, has honed the orchestra to a very high standard without imposing any super-blended smoothness, so the notes of the prelude tugged at each other with real Schmerz. His first act was broad, the second scherzo-like. The muscularity of his interpretation made the Act 3 prelude gripping in its raging emotions, and his pacing was secure… An outstanding achievement.
