Daniele Gatti (conductor)

After Riccardo Chailly started the RCO’s celebrated association with the Dutch National Opera with masterpieces by Verdi and Puccini, Mariss Jansons continued with unforgettable Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich productions. With brilliant performances of Verdi’s Falstaff Daniele Gatti (at that moment not yet chief conductor) started a new chapter to this collaboration. Their spectacular 2017 production of Richard Strauss’ Salome is another highlight in the already impressive list.

Whatever impropriety Mr Gatti is alleged to have done it has not deterred the RCO from releasing the recorded material they have in the can. It will be some time before they appoint a new Principal Conductor obviously so this will help fill the gap until they enter a new chapter of their history. It would have been a tragedy to lose the World No 1 Orchestra from the SACD catalogue.

Does anybody have any information at all about when this is likely to be released?

The opera's subject matter is rather ironic given the circumstances of Gatti's departure.
