Notes and Editorial Reviews

A gripping performance, one of the best recordings ever of this modern masterpiece, and certainly the best in its price range. Karl Böhm was one of the classic conductors of this opera from the beginning, and this is one of his most dramatic readings.

Truly a legend in her own time, soprano Anja Silja recently celebrated her 70th birthday just a few months after performing in Berg's opera Lulu! For over 30 years, she has been considered a leading vocal interpreter of Berg, Schoenberg, Weill, Janácek and Wagner. Live performance, Salzburg, August 8, 1971.
