HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Alban Berg – Wozzeck (Lear, Wunderlich, Fischer-Dieskau, Böhm)

Many many thanks to our friend Trottar
This is a great, classic studio recording of Berg’s first opera. I don’t know what I liked about the story, but I immediately loved the Mahlerian score, especially as presented in such a sympathetic recording. The warmth of both Böhm’s conducting and Fischer-Deiskau’s wonderful voice, and the chemistry of the two principles still comes through forty years later. True, Fischer-Deiskau is perhaps too sane and vocally balanced for his part,but his performance is still one of the greatest because of the genius of his vocal coloring. This studio version still holds its own due to the great performers and because the studio mix balances the voices with the orchestra perfectly, allowing us to hear all the vocal parts even in the loudest moments.

  1. Alban Berg’s Wozzek is still to day a world wide successful Story of a twelve Tone Opera: The reason is the libretto and the orchestra sound which makes Alban Berg
    uncomparable.-There are dozens of Recordings. The differences are mainly the
    expression singing of the roles of Marie and Wozzek.-I own 9 Wozzek performances and I love this recording best , because all roles were sung by the best singers of our times. On the stage I liked best the Abbado Wozzek with the VPO under the stage direction of Adolf Dresen ( recorded by DG 1986). Trottar
