Live recording, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, 24 and 26 May 2013

The Wagner year 2013 brought something special to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's concert schedule. The RCO pulled out all the stops with a full performance of a Wagner opera in concert version. Busy carving out an impressive career for himself and making his fifth appearance at Bayreuth last summer, Andris Nelsons has certainly earned his spurs as a Wagner specialist. He is led the RCO and a cast of international soloists in Der fliegende Holländer, an opera about the captain of an infamous Dutch ghost ship who can be freed only by a woman who consents to marry him.

From the press

"... overwhelming and breathtaking." *****
- Eddie Vetter, Telegraaf

"Anja Kampe and Terje Stensvold were breathtaking... but also Kwangchul Youn and Christopher Ventris gave powerful and nuanced interpretations" -

"... Nelsons brought to the music many hues and shades while whipping up and taming great orchestral and choral waves "
- Frits van der Waa, Volkskrant

"this tempestuous performance would be worth having for chorus (the NDR Chor and WDR Rundfunkchor Köln) and orchestra alone, but it has strong soloists too: Terje Stensvold, warm and only too chillingly persuasive in the title role; Anja Kampe an urgent, obsessed Senta; Kwangchul Youn as her father, Daland; and Christopher Ventris as the spurned Erik. Jane Henschel’s Mary and Russell Thomas as the Steersman contribute excellent cameos. The Royal Concertgebouw’s low brass and timpani shine, but all is secure under the experienced baton of Andris Nelsons, fast becoming the Wagner conductor of choice ... this is a must."
- Fiona Maddocks, The Observer, 8th March 2015
