5.0 out of 5 stars Hypnotic journey into Berg mind December 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Getting to know berg music. The three works on this issue are worth hearing. The Violin Concerto, Lyric Suite, and the Three Orchestral Pieces offered a rarely window into Berg complicated sound world. A dark tragic world of emotions that requires from the performances truth understanding on the score, and from the listener to be attentive to every whisper. However this new issue by Naxos is really one to have, for every serious listener being or already know Berg.
The Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the conductor Eri Klas, shows a real commitment to berg intentions. The playing is superb, and the ability of the conductor to see the importance of the work structure, and explorer essential details shows comprehension from the highest order.
Berg's wrote his Violin Concerto as a memorial to Alma Mahler daughter, Manon Gropius, died at the age of eighteen. This is a great piece that produced effect of extraordinary beauty. Rebecca Hirsch gives a superb playing of tremendous power. Through The whispered like sections she provides a fine playing with great stress to details. Always aware to the importance of changing in moods and textures, Rebecca Hirsch shifted them perfectly. The Netherlands RSO respond perfectly to berg's complicated score, and they give a fine detailed playing.
Berg's first wrote his lyric suite in six movements, and for string quartet. After a successful premiere, performed by the Kolisch Ouartet's Berg decide to re-cast the second, third, four and six movements for string orchestra. Eri Klas opts for a cooler approach, seems perfectly right. He draws from the Netherlands RSO strings a playing of rich and depth sound. The last work in the CD is the dark, brooding Three Orchestral Pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Beatutiful November 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The performances on this disk are among the most glowing and sensitive I've heard. The violin concerto is so well performed and many levels it simply blows me away. First, it doesn't sound at all like the musicians are just playing the notes right, their attuned to the psychological depth of the music: it breaths a deep humanity sensitive to emotions. On it's own the piece move me deeply, but this performance feels like it's coming from the heart.... as well as the mind. It's highly sensitive to the importance of gesture and clarity of musical ideas that's part of the best serial technique. They get the structure from the overall form down to each tiny gesture. For me, this is the richest performance I know of. It's really beautiful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average performance February 26, 2013

Soloist in violin concerto insufficiently 'aggressive" with this difficult work, a bit swamped by the orchestra. Orchestral pieces very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non tonal music at it's best August 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is an exciting performance of Berg's Violin Concerto. With so much tonal garbage, from radio pop to classical Mozart floating around for centuries, it is exciting to see a tone row written with genius stamped on it, and then written into an exciting 4 movement sonata form. It never stops going around my head. This performance is so lyrical that it is hard to believe anyone would believe that atonal and 12 tone music is cold. It is much more exciting than Beethoven or Tori Amos at their highest could be!
