Notes & Reviews:

"The conventional wisdom in German-speaking countries (and even beyond) is that Bernd Alois Zimmermann's Die Soldaten is the most important opera to be written since Wozzeck... It's hard to argue with that assessment... Zimmermann was an endlessly inventive composer with a brilliant theatrical sense... The performances are uniformly superlative... Any fan of contemporary opera should be grateful to Wergo for making this remarkable performance of Zimmermann's masterpiece available again, and anyone skeptical about the expressive possibilities of serialism ought to get to know this searing work." -All Music Guide
