Recorded live on SACD in the sumptuous acoustic of Griegha llen in Bergen, this mind-blowing interpretation of Schoenberg's Gurre-Lieder involves 350 performers: large choral forces, six exceptional soloists, and the legendary Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra extended for the occasion all conducted by Edward Gardner. Marking the pinnacle of the Orchestra's 250th anniversary celebrations, the same forces offered two evening concerts that met with unanimous acclaim in the press, including a five-star review from The Daily Telegraph praising the 'sweep of Gardner's conducting, by turns luminous and incisive'.
