“Karabits, supported by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s outstandingly responsive playing, gives an utterly compelling account of the Third…Karabits’s performance of No.7, with both its reflective conclusion and the alternative upbeat ending recorded, is if anything even more remarkable.” ★★★★★

Karabits argues that the Third has a logic of its own, unrelated to the opera, and maintains his case in a truly terrifying yet detailed performance that precariously balances formal tautness with atrocious emotional intensity. The Seventh, he claims, is "a very tragic work", which is pushing it, though his interpretation is unnervingly bleak.
