Concert: Schönberg’s „Erwartung“ with the Symphony Orchestra Hamburg

„With the soprano Anne Schwanewilms, a vocally clever leading performer had been chosen; this Schönberg cannot use a diva, but only a fearless character singer who can nevertheless give support and form to the erratically fluttering text of the plot – woman wandering through the night, searching for her lover and ultimately finding his corpse – and the delicate challenges of this role. She succeeded impressively, also because Cambreling’s penchant for difficult modern classics was transferred to the shaping of the orchestra.“
