Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg


The present CD is the recorded document of a special performance.
When Simone Young lay down her baton on 15 June 2015 after the performance of Franz Schmidt’s The Book with Seven Seals, it was the 45th programme in the 90th Philharmonic concert that she had conducted within the ten years of her term as Hamburg Artistic Director (August 2005 to July 2015).
Thus the Hamburg State Philharmonic Orchestra did not require much persuading to issue this rarely performed work as a CD on the OehmsClassics label.
