17 November 2017


I had this recording before, but it was recorded from a radio broadcast, while this CD sounds crystal clear with audiophile remaster and sounds like a mastertape from the archives. We have here a legendary cast, each of them a legend in the roles they played here. It's fortunate to have this finally on CD! 

Bonus: At the end of Disc 2 is a bonus scene with Inge Borkh as Siegline. It's a rarity because Borkh didn't want to sing Wagner. Inge Borkh was born in 1917 and she turned 100 years old this 2017. We wish you many more years ahead madame!
