Notes & Reviews:
Peter Quantrill, Gramophone Magazine
Abbado's interpretation, is the most Expressionistically detailed of all. The textures shimmer and then glint to reveal Schoenberg's' own sea-change in orchestral writing over a decade ... Abbado and the Viennese live dangerously - and when day breaks and that prickly cactus Schoenberg finally blooms, they are unrivalled in splendour.

Everything about this recording impresses. Siegfried Jerusalem is on top form as Waldemar. He seems able to encompass all aspects of the role...This is a tremendous account of Gurrelieder, which I'm sure is one of the foremost versions in the catalogue.
