Bayerisches Staatsorchester

The orchestra of Munich’s Bavarian State Opera has made a great impression on record this year: in the pit (and on DVD) for Hans Abrahamsen’s The Snow Queen and Korngold’s Die tote Stadt (of which Richard Bratby wrote that Kirill Petrenko’s ‘Bavarian orchestra can deliver lushness without limits’).
