Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review
The advantages of hearing this opera live are demonstrated very effectively through Bo Skovhus's intense and theatrical account of the title-role, with Angela Denoke as an impressive Marie, never afraid to take dramatic risks ...but perhaps the real star of this set is Ingo Metzmacher - he conducts a Wozzeck of electrifying drive and unflinching modernity...hearing this set is a tremendous experience

BBC Music Magazine
Wozzeck benefits from careful attention to Berg's actual notes - often vaguely delivered in earlier recordings - instigated by Ingo Metzmacher...Bo Skovhus's deadpan soldier disintegrates with moving conviction

Gramophone Magazine
Ingo Metzmacher's blisteringly conducted live Wozzeck - an account that blends the Sturm-und-Drang vehemence of Mitropoulos, the explosiveness of Abbado and the arch-Mahlerian beauty of Dohnanyi - also pushes Bo Skovhus to provide a powerfully characterised Wozzeck.
