Description: In July 2011 a single disc from the same orchestra and conductor came out on the Capriccio label and we said “...you'll ask a lot of questions about how a 153-minute film... to which the music was fitted more closely than a glove, could have a soundtrack of only 77 minutes...” Now we have a two-disc release wih 144 minutes of music and there are 52 tracks instead of 32 and five pages of notes in far better English than Capriccio provided explain it all. 2 CDs. Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin; Frank Strobel.
