This review is from: Schoenberg: Gurre-Lieder (Audio CD)
A fine performance from Robert Craft, captured very spacioucly with wonderful sound. Soloists and chorus are fine. However, the one moment which makes it or breaks it in this piece is the speakers final line, "Erwacht, erwacht, ihr Blumen, zur Wonne!". Unfortunaly Ernst Haefliger seems tired and not to bothered about the flowers awakening. For me, the best by far at this point is Barbara Sukowa on DG with Claudio Abbado in charge. Here we have shades of Pierrot, leading us full voiced into the final hymn to the sun.
