Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Liebermann could not have picked a better conductor for the job. Bruno Maderna's studies with Hermann Scherchen, his uneasy blood-brotherhood with Boulez and the Darmstadt bunch and his own creative analysis of Renaissance music in performance and composition make him ideally equipped to eschew the broad strokes of an opera-house production, even one as finely tuned as Abbado's, for a more expansive, analytical approach that zeros in on the structural fundamentals of Berg's score just as the camera registers every flicker of naivety (Andres), lust (Marie) and uncomprehending despair (Wozzeck) in relentless close-up." -Gramophone
