Berg-Konzert: This is one of the works I have performed most often. There’s a nice dress rehearsal recording in my private archive that was taken when I was just turned 18. It is hard to imagine that the work was only 31 years old at the time. Well-intentioned colleagues seriously asked why I was wasting my talent on such terrible music. Because of this recording I was invited to Vienna to meet Alban Berg’s widow, Helene Berg, an impressive lady who told and showed me a lot about her Alban.
