Thielemann Plays Johann Strauss

Christian Thielemann has ascended the ranks to become a formidable conductor of Wagner, Beethoven, Bruckner and Richard Strauss. His reputation is based on this solid and very serious repertoire. That would suggest that he must be a solid and very serious man too. In fact, he has a sense of humour and he also enjoys music of lighter character. He is now the chief conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden and he let his hair down at least a little leading the orchestra's 2010 New Year's concert. From that concert here is the seldom-heard waltz On the Elbe by Johann Strauss Jr. Paul E. Robinson
