Review by JJ January 19, 2012 (3 of 7 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:    
Having formerly been issued in 2003 for the label Decca, this recording is today being rereleased on multichannel SACD on the Channel Classics label. Bartók’s only opera is a remarkable work on more than one level, as conductor Ivan Fisher points out: “Despite a few scenic productions that were successful, it is the concert versions of this opera that caused the greatest public reaction. At numerous concerts, I was the witness to this psychodrama in which listeners, who during the sixty minutes of Bartók’s profoundly moving music were fixated by the faces of the two singers or followed the translation via the subtitles or in their program, and were confronted with themselves.” Ivan Fisher thus offers a lively and vibrant vision of this Bartók masterpiece, and a true sharing is thus born, transforming musical listening into a living experience. A great moment.
