Renaud Capuçon’s Berg Concerto is BBC Music Magazine Choice
BBC Music Magazine’s opinion is clear-cut : Renaud‘s interpretation in Berg Concerto A la Mémoire d’un Ange (In the memory of an Angel), recorded with the Wiener Philharmoniker and Daniel Harding, is definitely "The Best Recording" among "so many strong, viable alternatives".
The Concerto was composed in the memory of Manon, the daughter of one of Berg’s friend. Thus, according to BBC Music Magazine, "No version of the Concerto more compellingly engages the listener in the tragedy oft he Manon story than this.".
