Such is the message communicated in Alban Berg’s setting of the work, which was premiered more than 100 years later in Berlin. Even before its first performance the opera was already causing controversy, with critics – Schoenberg among them – labelling Berg’s decision to set Büchner’s play to music a daring and ill-conceived venture, but in the end it proved to be one of the great successes on the stage, its perfect blend of a strictly autonomous design and dramatic expressiveness providing the perfect. musical dress for the playwright’s social criticism. Starring the great baritone Theo Adam and mezzo soprano Gisela Schröter, conductor Herbert Kegel establishing his status as champion of the great, monumental 20th century masterpieces. Booklet contains detailed tracklist, notes and plot synopsis.

1. Act II: "Amfortas!

Theo Adam is strong in the title role, but his progression from downtrodden passivity to uncontrollable passion and madness is somewhat underplayed. The other roles are effectively characterized, for the most part. What the singers may lack in sheer vocal beauty they make up for in dramatic conviction. That's true of Gisela Schröter as Marie; her voice is less than vibrant in her lower register, but she conveys Marie's despair and destitution convincingly, and her interaction with Margaret (Gisela Pohl) in the second scene is ferociously catty

Hat er do gestanden (Wozzeck, Marie) by Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra, Herbert Kegel, Theo Adam & Gisela Schröter. Theo Adam offers a most musical and humane Wozzeck and Kegel really keeps it moving in a way that brings back the rawness of the piece, not the homogenized romantic sound one hears in many Berg performances nowadays.
