Notes & Reviews:

"This performance and production of Schoenberg's unfinished opera are staggering. So often an updating to modern times does not work. But there is a timelessness, a lack of distinct place, about the opera, that its story can be effectively transferred... The performance is beyond praise. Grundheber actually sings the sprechstimme in a beautiful, even luxurious voice. Moser copes heroically with Aaron's terrifying vocal lines, capturing all the slimy glibness of the character... For this elaborate production the Vienna State Opera not only used its already large chorus, but brought in the Extra-Chorus of the Opera and the Slovak Philharmonic Chorus. In addition to the Vienna Philharmonic in the pit, the Opera's Stage Orchestra is used. Gatti leads these immense forces with authority, musical precision, and taste." -American Record Guide
