Lynn René Bayley
Fanfare, January 2014

…the biggest reason to own this DVD is to hear—and see—how Karl Böhm was able to pull the disparate threads of Berg’s score together, phrase it as if it were Richard Strauss, and keep the whole thing flowing with astonishing grace and ease. His performance is the other tour de force in this production.

…this is…one of the best productions of Lulu I’ve ever seen… © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

MusicWeb International, September 2013

As a version of the original version of Lulu this is unique in the catalogue…the quality of the performance is sufficient to justify a place for this historical recording in the catalogues. It has another advantage, too: unlike many of the modern issues, it adheres to Berg’s original scenario without the superfluous addition of any layers of confusing ‘conception’. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
