CRITIC REVIEW:

"AUFSTIEG UND FALL DER STADT MAHAGONNY (Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny). Soloists, Cologne Radio Symphony, Jan Latham-Konig, cond. Capriccio, 2 CDs. This digital version with a real opera singer, Anja Silja, in the pivotal role of Jenny, supplants CBS' 33-year-old mono production (also on CD in an arrangement for Lotte Lenya) by virtue of its musical rectitude and the authentic accents of its all-German cast.”
