Maki Namekawa and Dennis Russell Davies devote themselves to Vol. 16 – after presenting Mozart’s Magic Flute for piano four hands on Vol. 10 – an opera transcription “Alexander von Zemlinsky: Ludwig von Beethoven’s Fidelio”. They are assisted by Waltraud Meier and Kurt Moll, two opera greats – as speakers in the melodrama “How cold is it …”. A world premiere, a discovery!
