Schreker: Die Gezeichneten (The Branded) / Alfred Muff, Monte Pederson, Laszlo Polgar, Elizabeth Connell and Heinz Kruse

Notes & Reviews:

The Penguin Guide
What Zagrosek's gloriously recorded version demonstrates is the range of atmospheric beauty in the score. Zagrosek draws dedicated playing and singing from the massive ensemble, and the beautifully balanced sound is of demonstration quality.

Zagrosek's reading is superb, his cast almost without flaw. I have not heard Connell give a better performance: she has all Carlotta's glamour, together with a purity of tone and a subtle response to words and phrasing that come close to giving her a soul. The precision and detail of the subsidiary characters are praiseworthy throughout; even very small roles have been cast form strength. The recording is remarkably fine, spacious and sumptuous, with not a single detail out of focus.
