Notes & Reviews:

"BelAir Classiques' DVD of a performance staged at the 2001 Festival d'Aix-en-Provence may not have (Petr Weigl's) consistent dramatic punch, but musically it's one of the strongest performances on CD or video... Conductor Daniel Harding's pacing of the opera is superb; it has rarely sounded so atmospheric and mysterious. The Mahler Chamber Orchestra plays with wonderful clarity and freedom; their performance makes it clear that the opera is no mannered exercise in English preciousness, as it can sometimes come off, but a genuine masterpiece. Musically, this version can be recommended without reservation, and aside from the weak portrayal of the ghosts, it's a dramatically powerful performance." -All Music Guide
