Notes & Reviews:
This comprehensive collection of Berg's orchestral works, performed by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra under its former principal conductor Mario Venzago, is released on two SA-CDs for the price of one. The Violin Concerto features the Dutch violinist Isabelle van Keulen. The works span Berg's creative output from his first published piece, the Piano Sonata, Op. 1, in the orchestration by Theo Verbey, to the Symphonic Pieces from the Opera 'Lulu', the last work that Berg completed before his untimely death in 1935, aged fifty.
