 Fine performance of the truncated score October 3, 2016 By J. Tatnall (West Grove, PA) See All My Reviews "When this recording was issued Lulu was a 2 act opera with a short pantomime tag on to complete it. As such, this is a stunning performance. Everybody involved is in top form, knows the score from the theater, and obviously relishes working on a 20th century masterpiece. While it cannot supplant the now finished score, this is still a fine performance and worthy of hearing for the fine cast and knowing conducting." Report Abuse
