Andris Nelsons, Kristine Opolais, and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig form a Dvořák sound from the middle, singing the melodies that the composer hid in all layers of his music with tender, warm, soft colors. Nelsons’ tempos remain calm and relaxed, allowing the omnipresent beauty of Dvořák’s
music to unfold and flood the Gewandhaus.

This is the first DVD and Blu-ray release of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig under the baton of its new music director Andris Nelsons.

Recorded at the Gewandhaus zu Leipzig,
