Notes & Reviews:

"For listeners who don't understand German, the complicated, often mysterious goings-on in this work (it's based on two plays by the German dramatist Frank Wedekind, 'Erdgeist' and 'Pandora's Box') with its many characters (most of whom you wouldn't want to meet) are serious obstacles to understanding the plot, let alone the motives of the protagonists... So Chandos deserves plaudits for this complete English version." -Moses, ARG

Gramophone Magazine
The 2002 production of Berg's Lulu by Richard Jones is generally agreed to be one of the best things to come from troubled English National Opera in recent years. Chandos has done everyone a favour by transferring its 2005 revival lock, stock and smoking revolver from the opera house to the studio... Lisa Saffer... brings unruffled poise and a shapely, silken tone that would not be out of place in Wolf. Robert Hayward's Schön is gruff, like his Wotan: a bully reduced to bluster. It is Countess Geschwitz who must convey whatever redemptive transformation Berg... has to offer, and Susan Parry is equal to the task, moving from mannish suavity to an intensely moving Liebestod.
