HASH(0xa4985c0c) out of 5 stars 2nd Viennese School in 1st Class Performances April 2 2014
By Lloyd Paguia Arriola - Published on
Verified Purchase
I have long been an admirer of the late Giuseppe Sinopoli, even if his conducting might border on the hector in and enervating. In this box set he brings out the fullest in all the scores that require opulent treatment--i.e. GURRELIEDER, the Six Songs, Opus 8, ERWARTUNG (the last two with the most gloriously rich-sounding Alessandra Marc, a mightily undervalued hochdramatisch Sopran). And in the Webern, the keen insight and spartan textures are achieved by a conductor who was psychologically insightful and precise with his ideas, and was capable of transmitting those ideas to his Dresden players. If, as Herbert von Karajan once famously said of the Staatskapelle Dresden orchestra that their playing was "magnificent--like old gold", here the Italian maestro is able to bring out the inherent beauty of the band's playing with a mote modern virtuoso acuity and precision. The works by Alban Berg seem to be as close to Sinopoli as any music. Here the music of Berg sounds positively ultra-Romantic, even ultra-Mahlerian--and we are witnesses to some of the most impressive and compelling renditions of these works as a result. Whether listening to the Kammerkonzert, the Violin Concerto, the Three Orchestral Pieces, Der Wein--this is music-making on a transcendental, even exalted and divine, level. I cannot recommend this set more highly.
HASH(0xa4a97a20) out of 5 stars stunning 2nd Viennese School May 9 2016
By stats guy - Published on
I agree with the previous reviewer. The *sound* on this set is utterly spellbinding. Berg has never sounded so lush and luxuriant-- the violin concerto in Sinopoli's hand becomes a spiritual descendent of Brahm's alto rhapsody, the ending utterly transcendent, an apotheosis. The pieces from the Lyric Suite thunder and sing like Schubert's string quintet. This is definitely a "backward-looking" approach to the 2nd Viennese school, but I think the music is all the better for it. I also find Alessandra Marc's singing on the vocal pieces stunning.
