Stephen Eddins, August 2011

Reimann uses his large orchestra with restraint, so the singers are never overwhelmed. His reticence in using the strings in anything like a conventional melodic manner makes their occasional bursts of lyricism all the more striking….visually stunning production; the potent images make it easy to imagine that the opera made an especially gripping impression in the theater. The soloists are all top-notch singing actors…Erik Nielsen leads the Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester in a taut, focused, and utterly secure performance of the challenging score. The sound of the live recording is full, very well-balanced, and mostly clean.
