Two nominations for Edison Klassiek
They are live recordings of the world premiere of Manfred Trojahn’s opera Orest and the opera Der Schatzgräber by Franz Schreker. The two productions were conducted by Marc Albrecht, principal conductor of Dutch National Opera and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra (NedPhO), who took their places in the orchestra pit of Dutch National Opera & Ballet for both productions.
The nominations are a tribute to the years of successful collaboration between Dutch National Opera, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and principal conductor of both organisations Marc Albrecht. As the regular partner of Dutch National Opera, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra|Netherlands Chamber Orchestra specialises in opera, and makes a major contribution to the high musical quality of the adventurous programming of DNO. The NedPhO accompanies a great many of the opera productions presented in Dutch National Opera & Ballet each season.
A very successful live CD recording of DNO’s production of Richard Strauss’ opera Elektra, also with Marc Albrecht conducting the NedPhO, was previously released on the label New Arts International. Dutch National Opera has been collaborating with New Arts International for many years. More live recordings of DNO productions are planned for the future.
