This recording is remarkable in that while Abbado, and the wonderful London Symphony Orchestra's players, are playing mostly atonal music that can seem downright strange, dissonant, and strident, especially to ears that are not used to Berg, they have no trouble conveying the beauty, lusciousness, and excitement of much of this music. This is particularly true in the beginning and end of the "Lulu Suite," the final movement ("Marsch") of Berg's "Three Pieces for Orchestra," and the final selection of the five "Altenberg" lieder.

Since his stormy debut with The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, conductor Daniele Gatti has been a regular guest at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, where he has established a fruitful working relationship. On this CD, he conducts the orchestra in two key works by Alban Berg - his early 'Three Orchestral Pieces' in combination with the suite from his unfinished opera 'Lulu', his swan-song. Both pieces - conducted from memory during the concert performances - receive ominous and atmospheric readings from Maestro Gatti.

In composing Lulu, Alban Berg made a fascinating attempt to reconcile chaos and order under one operatic roof, setting a harrowing tale of moral anarchy to a 12-tone score that is rigorously organized down to the smallest staging detail. On one level Lulu is a “number opera" consisting of a sequence of arias, ensembles, cavatinas, ballades and other forms traditionally associated with vocal music (all of which are clearly identified by Berg in the score). At the same time, each of the three acts has within it a single large-scale form, the different sections of which are scattered throughout the act, which mirrors the main dramatic development. Act I, for example, is dominated by a sonata form, associated with Dr Schön’s attempts to break free of Lulu, the exposition and the first reprise of which appear when Schön and Lulu argue in scene 2 while the development and recapitulation appear when the arguent continues in scene 3. In Act II the largescale form is a rondo (continually interrupted in scene 1 but heard in its entirety as a continuous piece in scene 2 associated with Alwa’s declarations of love for Lulu, while in Act III a set of variations, based on a cabaritoneet song by Wedekind himself, charts Lulu’s descent into prostitution.

Excellent value box containing all of Berg's major works. The best performance is maybe Abbado's of Wozzeck. This is a live recording and sounds like it;very exciting orchestral playing that sometimes almost drowns out the voices . I dont think this is a problem as it kind of fits with opera's theme of helpless people up against forces they cant control etc. The Boulez recording of Lulu is also very good but here the lack of libretto in the package is a bit annoying as the opera has a very elaborate plot and the synopsis provided isnt really detailed enough to follow what's going on.
