Rewiev eng.

The revival of Wozzeck in 2001 featured a performance taped for future TV broadcast (in the pre-HD days). Struckmann, Clark and Devlin repeated their roles from the 1997 production premiere, with Swedish soprano Katarina Dalayman appearing as a smoldering Marie and Wolfgang Neumann, a former MET Siegfried, appearing as the Drum Major. Levine conducted all four performances. Anthony Tommasini, in the NYTimes, was bowled over: “Perhaps some listeners are put off by the reputation of Wozzeck as an 'atonal' score, with that word's connotations of gnashing dissonance and angst. But atonal is too simplistic a way to describe Berg's waywardly chromatic post-Romantic language and searching explorations of harmony and color. Under the inspired conducting of James Levine the music was searingly beautiful. As played here, the wistfully sumptuous string writing rivaled the most beguiling passages in Parsifal. Even the gnarly, brassy outbursts, though raw and biting, were somehow elegant, never crude. Structurally, the score is a succession of Neo-Classical musical forms (passacaglia, march, sonata movement, fantasy, fugue and such). Mr. Levine projected these forms, but discretely, so as not to lose the taut dramatic arc that kept you hooked for 100 minutes straight, with only brief pauses separating the three inexorable acts.”
The telecast never took place, and the video of Wozzeck went unreleased for over ten years. Finally, to commemorate Levine’s 40th anniversary at the MET, the DVD of Wozzeck was finally released.
