5.0 out of 5 stars Wozzeck 13 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had known Berg, but not Wozzeck. I am listening to it now because ENO is performing it in summer. This version shows eccentricity, humour and contorted lyricism. It is a good introduction to modern operatic music - and the fact that it was written at the time of the Great War gives it poignancy. The CD allows you to download the libretto online, as seems to be the case with all Decca CDs - and this is more use than a little book with the ilbretto.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recording 27 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is probably as satisfying as any other version of Wozzeck available. The score is movingly realised and performed by the Vienna Philharmonic and singers. Abbado and Daniel versions are important alternatives for this ceaselessly fascinating, profound and beautiful opera. Contrary to another review, this is certainly a recording that was worth reissuing.

This was a good introduction to this opera which I saw at Covent Garden on 8th November - which was terrific. There was some problem downloading the libretto but I was helped by Amazon to contact Decca and they sent me the libretto as an email attachment

2.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece ruined by shoddy conducting 25 April 2012
By Robber
Format:Audio CD
Alban Berg's opera `Wozzeck' is a powerful score which is one of the great masterpieces of the twentieth century. The text is a heavily cut version of the play of the same name by the influential Playwright Georg Büchner who died at a tragically young age. I will not go into the actual story of this significant work as the synopsis is easily found on the internet. At face value, this would seem to be a noteworthy performance of the complex score, as it boasts the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and a `must' for any serious collector of opera - however, it is badly let down by lacklustre conducting (Christoph von Dohnányi) and unfortunate recording balance. The singers are far too close so that much of the orchestral details are lost. Whatever happened to the advances made in Decca recordings from the 1960s and 1970s? Now and then the orchestra rises up but the effect is to make the recording sound too engineered. Apart from the bass drum and a few other percussion instruments, the rest of the important kitchen department might as well not be there. One gets the impression that this is a mere `play through' and not any serious attempt to make a recording. CD 1 contains Acts 1 and 2 and the second CD has Act 3 and an `extra'. Eberhard Waechter (Wozzeck) is a fine singer and actor, though a little past his best, and the first scene with the remarkable actor/singer Heinz Zednik (Hauptmann) is effective in gently introducing us into Wozzeck's grim world. The first orchestral interlude (and, indeed, most of these vital links) is a dreary affair with poor orchestral blending and an almost complete lack of tension. The scene with the cutting of the canes, Andres (Horst Laubenthal) is well sung. Read more ›
