Staatskapelle Dresden/Christian Thielemann - Großes Festspielhaus Salzburg, 29 March - 1 April 2013
The shadow of Herbert von Karajan still hangs over Salzburg. Nowhere more creepily than in this souvenir shop window.
After Simon Rattle's mildly experimental stewardship (by Salzburg standards), the Easter Festival baton passed this year to Christian Thielemann, who seems keener to preserve Karajan's tradition of tradition. 2013 focused on three big guns - Beethoven, Brahms and Wagner.
