Notes & Reviews:

  • New 2012 recording of this massive early Schoenberg opus, an apotheosis of late-Romanticism
  • Gunter Neuhold leads the Bibao Symphony Orchestra
  • Booklet and sung text in German and English; includes performer biographies

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Neuhold's interpretation moves the music along, generally to its benefit. The orchestra is competent. The female leads are superior to their counterparts in the Mehta reading; and in his melodrama, West's narration is highly musical. Good as Hans Hotter is in the Mehta, West is even better. His lighter register - he's a tenor - -accords better with its orchestral accompaniment. Audience noise is minimal. The notes include texts and translations.
