Notes & Reviews:

"What a gorgeous disc! Not only does the Met Orchestra (from the Metropolitan Opera) have the necessary panache and tonal depths for Berg's music, plus long experience of both operas, but Renee Fleming proves to be a haunting, heartrending Marie and a sensuous Lulu. In Levine's reading, the Three Pieces are slow, dark, and menacing, with a wild and yet firmly controlled March. Sony's recording is a knockout!" -Fanfare
