Info for Berg: Drei Orchesterstücke, Op. 6 & Lulu Suite (Live)
Since taking audiences by storm in his first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in April 2004, conductor Daniele Gatti has been a regular and welcome guest with the orchestra. His concert performances are characterised by highly individual interpretations of traditional orchestral repertoire and a fondness for less common repertoire, with a particular preference for the Second Viennese School and related movements.
On this album, Gatti's first recording with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, he conducts two key works by Alban Berg: the early Drei Orchesterstücke and the suite from the unfinished opera Lulu, Berg's swansong. Under his baton, both works, which Gatti conducted from memory in these concerts, are given highly ominous, atmospheric performances.
“…conductors as well as listeners can be distracted by the high-gloss surfaces of Berg's orchestration, especially in the Lulu Suite, but Gatti always draws the ear inwards, past smoochy saxophone and celesta, deep inside those contrapuntal caverns of ecstasy where Berg is even more in his element that Mahler or Strauss.” (Gramophone)
“Gatti's Berg is very much post-Romantic rather than proto-modernist, with the Mahlerian influences emphasised. In the Three Orchestral Pieces, however, he generates shocking intensity throughout...here you really do feel you've been witness to the wartime dissolution of a world.” (The Guardian)
