Alban Berg: Wozzeck / Grundheber, Meier, Clark, von Kannen, Wottrich, Vogel, Trekel, Schaechter. Barenboim [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Berg is recasting Buchner's fragmentary drama in the form of three self-contained acts by drawing on existing musical genres and traditional styles, by quoting various types of songs and dance forms and, by reverting to earlier compositional techniques. It's not just an opera about social compassion; it's an opera in which fear finds consummate musical expression.
