Berg: Orchestral Works

“Thanks to the lucid conducting of Mario Venzago, the magnificent and fearless playing of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, and a Chandos recording which combines clarity and enormous weight, this set represents an outstanding addition to the catalogue…” --BBC Music Magazine, May 2009 *****

“That the suites from Wozzeck and Lulu are the most pressing reasons to hear this set is due in large part to the stature and eloquence of Geraldine McGreevy's contributions, for if she ever sang either of Berg's hapless heroines on stage in the UK, I would beat a path to the opera-house door.” --Gramophone Magazine, May 2009

“The main orchestra works come off extremely well here...the orchestral suites from Wozzeck and Lulu have both intensity and atmosphere. The Three Pieces, Op. 6 have more warmth here than usual, though the finale has a fine sense of impending doom.” --Penguin Guide, 2011 edition
