Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
Carefully formulated vocal lines and exemplary orchestral sounds of delicate transparency were coaxed from the orchestra by Jonas Alber.
The Cape Times
Jonas Alber conducted with an efficient economy of gesture, achieving generally taut ensemble and good balances.
The Museum Orchestra excels with its impressive sound; however, it is Jonas Alber, Braunschweig’s General Music Director, who, at the age of 33, shows his skill in allowing Schreker’s orchestral opulence to sound transparent and elastic, without sacrificing its musical colouring. The many parts of the movement never overpower the singers. A great triumph for the Frankfurt Opera.
