In early 1989 Klaus Schulze was asked to perform an open air concert in Dresden (in what was then still East Germany) during the summer, so the concert was arranged for August 5th 1989 and five pieces were prepared for performance. Due to last minute restrictions by the police only the main pieces (Dresden One and Dresden Two) were performed live to the 6,800 strong audience, the other pieces were recorded later in the studio. As all five tracks were prepared for the concert, the decision was made to include them for the release.
To fit the 5 tracks on 2 CDs the numbering is somewhat confusing.
The LP version has the different title DRESDEN - IMAGINARY SCENES, having a slightly different cover and consisting of only the studio tracks.
The cover design is by Icon London, Los Angeles.
THE DRESDEN PERFORMANCE is one of the few Schulze albums, not reissued by REVISTED RECORDS due to copyrights.
