Description
Conductor Claudio Abbado's superb 1987 staging of Alban Berg's expressionistic masterpiece about a jealous soldier's descent into madness is sung in German, with optional English subtitles.

"The music, on the cusp between Mahlerian chromaticism and burgeoning atonality, is compelling throughout. Pundits have strewn much verbiage about this work's structure, its scenes that contain passacaglias, fugues, inventions, rhapsodies, and suites. The strings express a chaotic fugue in the trio between Wozzeck, the captain, and the doctor. In this cramped expressionist dimension, folk songs have an atonal edge, sunsets are fires that rattle, dance melodies are off-key and menacing.... The cast is universally excellent, particularly Franz Grundheber's Wozzeck, who manages to evince sympathy, and [Hildegard] Behrens, whose ambivalent Marie does not. The orchestral interludes, so perceptively performed by [Claudio] Abbado, enhance and heighten the tension."Classical Net
