"[Robert Craft] has turned in a fine and impressive achievement that shows his awareness that Berg has a subtler and more sophisticated discipline than he is sometimes credited with and a clear sort of musical thought that only requires an intelligent performance to elucidate. What one remembers as a murky, introverted expressionism turns out—under proper treatment — to be a hand-some, rational, expressive musicality." - Eric Salzman, The New York Times, 25 March 1962
