Info
Woyzeck, Georg Büchner’s social tragedy about the total lack of prospects for poor, exploited people and the mercilessness of military life, found the ideal composer to set it to music in Alban Berg. The composer had seen the Vienna premiere of the drama in 1914, was immediately fascinated and started composing an opera based on Büchner’s text. His interest in setting the work was heightened by his own experiences of war, though he did not finish the opera until 1922. Using atonality and elements of twelve-tone technique Berg found haunting sounds that vividly evoke visions of death, jealousy, inner distress and hopelessness. Despite considerable opposition, the premiere took place in Berlin in 1925 under Erich Kleiber – and straight away established the opera as a progressive masterpiece.
