“Reimann seems to have selected his subject to suit the particular expressionist strengths of his own musical language, rather than tailoring his music to the specifics of the drama...the mix is powerfully effective, and this recording, taken from the production in Frankfurt last autumn, in which Claudia Barainsky is outstanding in the title role, conveys a real sense of its theatrical impact.”
