Description
Recorded live at the Gewandhaus Leipzig in 2007, this 80th birthday concert celebrates a veteran conductor who led that city's orchestra for 30 years. Selections include Otto Nicolai's Overture to The Merry Wives of Windsor, Stanislaw Moniuszko's Halka's Mazurka, excerpts from Brahms's Liebeslieder-Walzer, Op. 52, Dvorák's Slavonic Dance, Op. 72, No. 2, Tchaikovsky's Capriccio Italien, Op. 45, the Mambo from Bernstein's West Side Story, excerpts from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, Dukas's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, the Prelude to Bizet's Carmen, and Antônio Carlos Jobim's "The Girl From Ipanema." The bonus film shows Kurt Masur being awarded the Leipzig Mendelssohn Prize for his life's work.

"It's a pops program, consisting of relatively short, popular works … the whole showcasing Masur's wide range of tastes, and the ability of this outstanding orchestra to perform the music idiomatically, no matter the genre…. I have never heard a better Capriccio Italien."—Cliffs Classics
