Berg: Wozzeck Staatsoper Berlin [Franz Grundheber, Waltraud Meier, Daniel Barenboim] [Euroarts: 2066758]

Add To Wish List + £24.99 - Item is discontinued.

The legendary production of Alban Berg's Wozzeck, formerly released by Warner Music, again available on DVD.

A splendid opera under the musical direction of Daniel Barenboim and staged by his close friend Patrice Chérau.

When Alban Berg saw a performance of the existentialist drama Woyzeck by Georg Büchner, he said it left such a tremendous impression on him that he immediately made up his mind to set it to music.

Berg is recasting Büchner's fragmentary drama in a nearly expressionistic way. His music tears into the flesh. Berg's Wozzeck is not just an opera about social compassion, it is an opera in which fear finds consummate musical expression.

This extraordinary performance at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden was staged by Patrice Chéreau who can be called one of the greatest theatrical directors of this century.

Outstanding opera singers Franz Grundheber, Waltraud Meier, Graham Clark, Günter von Kannen and Mark Baker and many others complete this great opera performance.
