» All reviews
(...) This version of the Komgold opera distinguished itself, above all, in the orchestral plane. In his fourth presentation in the Teatro Colon, the Swiss-American conductor, Stefan Lano rendered a performance of the highest level, both from the technical as well as expressive standpoint He is well-acquainted with this seldom-performed work from having prepared it during his years as a pianist at the Vienna State Opera. He offered on this occasion, a seamless version of the opera in which the orchestra truly soared while maintaining perfect balance and permanent dramatic tension.
