No chance of switching off with Wozzeck, recorded live in Frankfurt. Sebastian Weigle’s conducting balances the spikiness with some surprisingly luscious intensity, and the dance rhythms that blur in and out of the score have a queasy catchiness. Audun Iversen’s Wozzeck is strongly sung and increasingly bewildered, and Claudia Mahnke’s Marie is notable for a truly wide vocal palette, the recorded sound catching her voice as it rings excitingly around the auditorium. The whole cast is excellent, and the set is greatly recommended on just about all accounts.
