The new 'tradition' of New Year's Eve concerts celebrated in Dresden and conducted by Thielemann started in 2010. The first two focussed on the music of Lehar but for this 2012/2013 concert the focus has moved to the Hungarian, Kalman. Kalman was initially resident in Vienna and successfully blended the Viennese style of light music with his own Hungarian input which included links to the popular gypsy flavours of the time. His most popular music comes from this earlier period in his life. This disc offers a well-balanced and fairly comprehensive survey of his music. Only the final item departs from Kalman and is the An der Elbe waltz by Strauss which concludes the concert.

The concert essentially highlights arias sung by the two soloists with additional items played by the orchestra, sung by the choir and danced by the ballet company. Ingeborg Schopf makes a very fine job of replacing the indisposed Diana Damrau at the very last minute. She is the leading soprano of the Dresden State Operetta company and is obviously at home with the repertoire. Her voice is well able to cope with the demands placed upon it in her four solo arias and also in the fifth piece, where she leads the chorus. She also partners Piotr Beczala in four duets with suitable aplomb.

The chorus are featured in three pieces and sing with gusto and enthusiasm plus some energetic gypsy clapping! The ballet sequence takes the form of a mini-story in much the same way as is familiar with the regular Vienna New Year's Day concerts. The dancing is expertly done and the costumes are exquisite. The orchestra play extremely well throughout under the attentive and meticulous Thielemann, who became their principal conductor in September 2012.

The film is about a tough subject, and it treats it with real respect and makes their story, your story.

A true hidden gem of a film. Powerful. Great cast led by newcomer, Michael Cuomo, and rounded out by some familiar faces who really help bring the story to life. Soundtrack is also surprisingly strong!
