Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This comes close to being a giant-killer among Wozzeck recordings; I have a few reservations but I admire this new version greatly and recommend it heartily... Carl-Johan Falkman's singing of the role is... remarkable -- few Wozzecks are as frightening as he is in the scene after the murder... Leif Segerstam's handling of the score is admirably pointed and flexible... [Katarina Dalayman's] is the finest performance here, vehement and characterful but beautifully sung... I cannot imagine anyone who loves this opera being disappointed by this newcomer; at its price the phrase 'super bargain' hardly does justice to it." - Michael Oliver, GRAMOPHONE "This comes close to being a giant-killer among Wozzeck recordings; I have a few reservations but I admire this new version greatly and recommend it heartily...
