Amoeba Review

Rubin Meisel, Hollywood 12/31/1969

Claudio Abbado, at 79 is considered by many to be the greatest living conductor. Here he is conducting violinst Isabella Faust and the orchestra of the Lucerne Festival. Though both concertos are superbly performed, the Berg is of special interest. It is subtitled "To the Memory of an Angel" as a memorial for the young and radiant beauty Manon Gropius, the daughter of Mahler's widow, Alma, and the great architect Walter Gropius. Manon died of polio at 16. It also serves as a memorial to the great modernist Alban Berg, who died a few months later on Christmas Eve, 1935.
