Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound

7 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance
