Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

Alban Berg's opera "Lulu" is the story of a lower-class girl who sleeps her way to fame and fortune before losing everything she has and finding death at the hands of Jack the Ripper.

Conductor Marc Albrecht supports the two main protagonists, Patricia Petibon's Lulu and Michael Volle's Dr. Schön, with the rich sonorities of Berg's music.

Particularly impressive are the gigantic backdrops that dominate the stage and were painted by Daniel Richter, one of the leading German artists of our time.

"… the wonderfully transparent, flowing sound of the Wiener Philharmoniker,
Read more which splendidly displays all the colors of this magical score under the fabulously precise baton of Marc Albrecht…." - FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNG

 Petibon is sensational May 8, 2012 By BURTON A JONES, JR. (Manvel, TX) See All My Reviews "This an excellent recording. I have several recordings by Petibon and it seems she can do no wrong. They are all excellent. This is a somewhat strange interpretation of Berg's masterpiece, as every recording of it seems to be. In comparing the recordings, I like the Laura Aiken recording and this one as the best. You can't go wrong with either. I recommend you buy both." Report Abuse
