Has copies of almost everything of Wagner works with the actions that quotes behind to a prompt @@@1950s. I have seen the majority of his shot in several venues but, arrival to see amd has revised the recent Tannhauser dvd with the disappointment adds was more than the delight to listen Kauffmann glorious actions of an excellent and diverse selection of elements of Wagner do. In fact, with which had listened to a prime minister little excerpts was near the tears with emotion. Wagner Done of the heavy questions in his tenors and to be achieved a singer has to have more than the powerful voice and a lot concentrated but has to that be able to transmit a sense of an action in a music more a soft plus and more lyrical the episodes owe that be like this very like this more dramatic declamations.
There is enjoyed a lot of final heldentenors and Sunday also on some years but never a those who mine of look to have everything! Suspicion so only can improve and eye advances in a hope that takes ours round give it casualidades to listen in of the complete versions of Tristan, Parsifal and Meistersinger.
This has to that be a better ÂŁ9 I is spent the long time!

Can buy any disk of operatic recital of some last 60 years and not finding the better example for any voice in any repertory. Kaufmann Sings Wagner likes Bergonzi sings green or Callus and Scotto sing the bel sings. Interpretatively Is seminal and vocally glorious. A Walkure and Siegfried excerpts is extraordinary. It sings to to the this music likes them to them Christa Ludvig has sung Mahler. His the combination of the utmost operatic action nuanced with a sensibility of adds it lieder singer. If any one calms did not believe you never that it could it that any the personnel of emotional connection with Wagner functions of heroic tenor, so only listen the Kaufmann. It is inspiring, it is moving, a Siegfried is in fact pleasant when it would owe that be and the one who the voice and the one who the musician; dark baritonal bell that develops and coverages out of reminiscent of Mario Of Monk then a finely voice of turns of the boss of the youngsters has Given Stefano and german diction that likes Hugh Canning said, ' could take dictation of'. Ossia seamless Integration of vocals, musical nuance, characterisation and theatre among singer and Wagner orchestral valuing. It forgets one all-battle too typical among singer and orchestra in this music - quite have the happy symbiosis. A pre-2nd world-wide War tradition (probably true to a 19th century) to sing this music with bel sings the technician remained with helden-tenor heft is alive and well with JW. It excepts Volume a diverse impression that could sing it this music for 20 years and not drying out of a voice, or limit his capacity to sentence italian music.

Be picky, my only light beef is is one ordering of some pieces. The chronological order would have been preferable for an operatic excerpts like Kaufmann and Runnicles spend out of an advance in a composition and vocal writing among Rienzi and Siegfried like this clearly, that everything after a Coverage excerpts touch the little anti-climatical. Those with a technology to king-order one that follows to take notes. Runnuicles And a Deutsche Oper is resupplies fantastic partners and some modern Decca the sound is glorious.

Easily could find this CD to be more than an irritation that anything more-still like this another collection of excerpts of a more final tenor has adapted to Wagner in the generation, with until today register a lot complete of any of some works (I follows to exclude Blue-accione of ray!). They are not the defender of excerpts disks in some better of time, but with Kaufmann included a 'well is better that at all' the syndrome has begun to spend thin. Felizmente All this is counteracted a lot so only for mine having received a new complete Gergiev Walkure to soften a swipe, but this disk finally contains the complete work, albeit any one a feigned for the tenor.
A excerpts of some works are glorious- take a unexpurgated 'In Fernem will hold of Lohengrin, glorious Rome Narration, excerpts of Rienzi and Meistersinger and fragment of Walkure and the tantalising Siegfried murmuring superbly in a forest (sad!), All sung with a tone burnished dark and in bylines bequeathed is coming to expect. Like an aside, the one who the atrocity this mark to try to build on Klaus Florian Vogt like the Heldentenor-I in fact find his thin and feeble voiced tentativas to be pathetic in comparison the Kaufmann.
An orchestra is full and rich-the leading 'Berlin of German State Work' the orchestra has the past of distinguished register with Wagner and further, with basses of exceptional register Konwitschny, Jochum, Maazel, Sinopoli and Thielemann to appoint but the little, and here is glorious form under another down the employee adds Wagner manager in Donald typical of Scozia Runnicles- concealed one 2nd and 3.os the registers of tax have done for Pentatone down Janowski had used THIS ORCHESTRA and manager like this a lot change it surely would elevate him the first class!
An absolute GOLD of this register is a Wesendonck Lieder has treated for a first time to the mine listened by the tenor. Wagner Marked a bookmark 'For a female voice' but has to that well sure would have applauded this action.
Am opened to listen songs more usually associated with a female voice sung for the tenor-I property the register of Jerusalem and Masur in Strauss Lieder, and Melchior in Schumann, but ossia something more.
A smoky tones of the his baritonal the tenor is ideally has adapted each song, tenderly in Giving Engel, almost can feel a sultry hot in Im Triebhaus, Schmerzen is fill with the anguish tortured and Traume has a erotic passion and sensuous line the one who bodes like this well for any future supposition of Tristan- beat but hope!
Is the masterclass in art and bordos utmost, with Runnicles and an orchestra taken in shape rich , radiant and perfectly balanced-so that no an irritation at all, then!!!!
Ossia For far a register a plus end Kaufmann has done and is allocated to be the classical of a gender. A soyust listens' for lovers of Wagner-and the music adds that it does. Unlimited Stars. Stewart Crowe

A wonderful action of Gentleman Kaufmann and Master Runnicles, and the enormous pleasure to listen A Wesendonck lieder sung by the man more than an usual female interpreter. Certainly value five stars.
BUT, the desire had bought a CD more than one download. A booklet in pdf is unpleasent to read, included when missing to fill my screen of computer an impression is small and thin. My main critique is for a way a register is divided to FOUR PART when imported the iTunes to add mine ipod. In Fernem the earth is the clue in his own. If it download them they have to that have the sure data has attached to them, reasons is like this often WRONG and reason is like this difficult to correct. A data of the clue thus disk is the joke, that is Frisco Mabel Joy Revisited reason ossia also the clue in his own. A Wesendonck Lieder the clues are diplomadas . All five of them, and his little album is titled Any Dambi Elephant Rosa.
BUYS The CD, DOES not DOWNLOAD.

I advances to look enormously to some actions of unavoidable phase of Jonas Kaufmann in Rienzi, Siegfried, Tannhauser when a time comes. Here we are to give it tantalising glimpse of joys to come. A peerless singer of enormous intelligence, row and the dramatic capacity that come from your radiant -Kaufmann mesmerises audience and sells out of any venue any big plus. Here his nuanced the interpretation of each frames of work was like the singer I for real adds. An orchestra is a lot of revenida and attuned to a dramatic landscape of each piece -to sustain a singer and transporting an auditor in a world of Wagner libretti. Ossia Surely that Wagner would have loved his functions of tenor to be sung. One returning 200th celebration of anniversary.
A Wesendonck lieder -usually sung for female singer- was treated fantastically and was the delicious unexpected present to an auditor.

Are Wagner enthusiast like this CD was the upper priority never is exited of then. I have had already Kaufmann Verismo recital and was therefore already captivated for a voice. I have had little doubt that Wagner the recital would be like this well so that the people have said. My expectations were more than has fulfilled adequately. Kaufmann Maintains alive an add Heldentenor tradition and also tip a plasticity of some representatives plus a lot of end of this tradition. More obviously, it is able to take down his voice ideally for a more adds intimacy of a Wesendonck Lieder. But in some works also, stuns with a resounding explosion of his cries of 'Waelse' in Law 1 to Die Walkure, in a course to establish his order of a sword that his father Wotan had bequeathed for emergencies. Then again, it is reservation in his transmission with a Woodbird, in a corresponding law of Siegfried.

Kaufmann Is a star of a show. But it would be wrong to spend in a gorgeous and carpet of support of the yours of series resupplied for an orchestra of a Deutsche Oper, Berlino, under an eye experienced of his manager, Donald Runnicles. A perfect blend of the voice and the faithfully taken instrument for a warm register.

In the swipe of scarce regime my order has arrived the pair of days with which had seen a recent has Fulfilled emission of Parsifal with Kaufmann like innocent fool. I have it that there is prendido hardly touch this disk of then. A flange is point and averts, an orchestral touching glorious and Decca has been quite generous to comprise an additional heart on 'In fernem Tierra, unnahbar euren Schritten' - to to the readers can like him look for this piece sung for Kaufmann that any one has uploaded to Youtube. A rendition here is breaking of heart.
When A disk has looked has been adapted of the disk looked of Peter late Hofmann this is to be release in a mid @@@1980s. A lot I have liked like this Hofmann voice, this registers this old plus there has been more crowd pleasers and is to Kaufmann credit that has won rave descriptions of to comprise some less obvious elections.
If you have not bought this closing like this a hasten 'add the basket'.

Be in accordance with some leading descriptions. It is not so only I add it helden tenor, but is like this a lot home with Puccini and Green. It was enthusiast to compare his Rienzi with my old Melchior register. To the respect Melchior is still supreme, but so only so only. In every respect Kaufmann is a perfect Wagnerian. Also it has Melchior sense of fun and mischief.
4 / 5
An excellent selection of some of Wagner moments more final for a voice of tenor. Kaufmann Is to good sure a more final tenor first of an audience today. It is house in virtually all some stir of the classical music and he can be comparison with some more utmost tenors of some spent - like this Melchior, Widdop, Windgassen, Slezak, Bjoerling etc. Ossia the CD adds .

Adore this same register although it is old and less polished that some of some newer versions. Really my prime minister foray to Wagner and any when complaining .
5 / 5
Wilhelm FurtwÀngler Is is Tristan so only und Isolde can be annoyed with. But still with a better T und I, there there is so only so much of him. Often I only touches some preludes and leave a shouty bit to a grownups.

But has something I for real adds roughly Tristan und Isolde concealed to maintain me going back paralizaciĂłn the - More does not think is a flange this in spite of. The work of mine is Latinate what. People emoting in of the Germans so only does not act. Germania Is ordered too much for emotion - I knows this reason once almost has taken prisoner partorisca jaywalking in Nordrhein-Westfalen partorisca jaywalking. It crosses a street with the touch of anarchy, praxis, passion - and was to come some uniforms to punish me. Odd and hilarious. This would not spend never in Palermo.

Like this yeah, thinks that to that likes me here is of some serious mainly. Wagner The composition here is near of wizardry - and know the or no, has changed a course of Western music.

NB: Ossia The description of a Pristine Audio king-mastering, originally posted in a MusicWeb put International web and has reproduced here for purpose of comparison with a EMI subject.

This register of diving – a prime minister for EMI that use a new technology the record tape – almost has not spent. FurtwĂ€ngler Was smarting under that see like this producing Walter Reads treachery in giving a Data Zauberflöte registering agreement to Karajan, while Law has been occupied undermining FurtwĂ€ngler like this yesterday man to promote Karajan like expensive informative of EMI classical. It have been fifteen years of FurtwĂ€ngler in the first place had directed Kirsten Flagstad and fallen enamoured with his voice. Beside Frieda Leider, Flagstad has been considered a reigning Isolde of a century, but there is now 57 years and already aiming some first signs of poor health. The time has run was to take his famous interpretation for a prime minister and last time in the register of studio. His upper notes on B-the plans always there was state insecure and the doubt can reproduce the cup C often enough to resupply a two required in a Law II “telegramme duet” when some lovers ecstatically hail each one which so another. Difficult test to find the pertinent and available BrangĂ€ne; in an end Flagstad repaid the debt of recognition his fellow Swedish Target Thebom the one who was launched like this the person another that Flagstad the satisfaction adds. Flagstad Natural partner, Lauritz Melchior had left a Metropolitan in the huff, in that has been has denied his celebration of Anniversary of the Money for General Manager Rudolf Bing informative, and gone to seeds-exile to retreat Hollywood – like this those who was to be Tristan?

This in spite of, all these difficulties were won neither or circumvented to produce that they register as it has honoured to both a manager and a producer. Like this FurtwĂ€ngler said to Law, “My name will be agreed partorisca east, but yours would have to that be.” In truth, some honours are equally has divided.

In spite of these difficulties, has had, after all, a lot of advantages the one who augured well for a success of a company. A Philharmonia Orchestra, formed for Law in 1945 was in shape glorious and there is enjoyed an excellent symbiotic report with FurtwĂ€ngler. A technology of new tape has left a manager to mussel a form and sustain a moment adds arches in the place of a four small takes demanded for 78s in music with that is intimately familiarised and duquel have vast experience. Flagstad Has been still in enormous voice , rich if a bit matronly of tone. It reads new Woman, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf has been involved to sing a two brief big Cs that was seamlessly jointed in like this any one could say – and so only pedants cured today. Thebom Has looked for to be extraordinarily very like this BrangĂ€ne although an organism of lacks of the voice in a “music of watchtower”. Ludwig Suthaus has given an action of his life likes Tristan, his baritonal his prime minister that suggests virility and heroism, then in Law III blocking to an agony of almost bestial incomprehension. A Dietrich Fischer young-Dieskau portrayed Kurwenal subtly like the noble, bewildered soul, loyal to a point of naivety. Rudolf Schock Sings mellifluously like both a Seaman and a Shepherd, while veteran Bayreuth Josef rule Greindl there is rid the cavernous, slightly nasal, but deeply moving, King Mark.

Some glories of boss of this register partorisca a lot of continuous be both Flagstad magisterial, voluminous Isolde and a glow burnished of an orchestral touching under FurtwĂ€ngler ecstatic direction. It listens to an anger and scorn of Flagstad voice to the equal that sings some words “Zerschlag is given trotzige Schiff” and “Er schwur dipped tausend Eide”. Of a soaring, yearning sweep of one opening to an ethereal “Liebestod”, a manager is to take of wrist and flow of this wondrous the music is an organic marvel . If you want to listen a manager and the orchestra that does the art adds in perfect harmony, shows a “SĂŒhnetrank” scene where Isolde proffers Tristan a purportedly poisoned goblet, or a delicate “Nachtmusik” likes to hunt recedes to a forest previously to the arrival of Tristan for some lovers' tryst. The big moments in this register likes him these has been always rented but another listens to them in a developing, touch it detailed resupplied by these again animal-mastered Pristine disks, agreed that skilfully FurtwĂ€ngler does other like this good things, also; for example, like work and sculpts some conversations among Isolde and BrangĂ€ne and Isolde and Tristan in Law I. Some trousers of whole work and breathes so that Tristan alternately raves and philosopher in his febrile delirium.

Agrees, this register there is now sixty years, this in spite of is given here of new life in Pristine “Environmental Stereo”. An effect is at all unnatural or artificial: Andrew Rosa has take pre-echo, enhanced upper and inferior frequencies, fluctuations of yours correct and has added so only quite ambience the work of engineering that was already glorious his day to the equal that swear this was prompt, narrow stereo. There is still the clue of fizz in some serious still in general a sonic detail is both spacious and detailed and some the original flowers in a sound remain intact. An included can listen FurtwĂ€ngler softly hissing and exhaling marks the rhythm with the to music likes-act them to him to infuse his musicians with his vision of a bookmark.

To date, a reason for a legendary state of this register there is eluded me, but to the revitalisation of Andrew Rosa has left me finally to comprise exactly as and reason is like this as well as his reputation there would be it. If has this register in a EMI GROC serious or included a Regis subject of @@subject, enough clumsily transferred of elepé require any to rush for the substitute, but this Pristine king-mastering is the revelation.

So only the fast description here.

Ossia arguably A better cd the register has to that Wagner operates it and I would compare it favourably with Karl Bohm register more modern. Where Bohm The times are more predictable and swift sometimes to a detriment to feel Furtwangler the approximation is more patient to a discharge that the extracted that feels more orders out of some dissonant agreements of those who fails to recapitulate is more agonizingly and passionately has transmitted.

Furtwangler The register here is long, but always is captivating - Bohm the endeavour looks that it leaves partorisca yearn a full ethereal way to be engendered; such chairs of atmospheric effect is of the importance adds in of the productions of Wagner to the works later like Parsifal, Gives Of Coverage and Tristan to the equal that tends to imbue some works with a class of existential anguish that often looks to be missing of in some more modern adaptations and like creating is of fundamental weight to one comprising of a class of his and operatic way that Wagner has looked for.

Liebestod Is also glorious here.

'Tristan Und Isolde' is the enormous and powerful bookmark, a concealed partorisca a lot is simply 'also' partorisca manage. Has the class of 'black magic' that no another work has, and is not an easy bookmark partorisca take the boss on. A music like the whole is, partorisca say a much less, in overwhelming. I took years and of the years to really 'take his', and has very listened register of him. This has said, find it a lot like the narcotic that has to that have. Small marvel that Wagner, when that writing, has said concealed 'Tristan is by train partorisca drive me crazy'. Anything a chance, this EMI monophonic the stands of register like one of some utmost registers of a century, and partorisca good reason. Furtwangler The way with a marker is extraordinary. It is like him it sees the supernatural mysticism in a music, and is determined partorisca do look to the equal that takes the life of him is adapted, which the certainly does here. It is helped enormously for Kirsten immortal Flagstad, whose vocal power and the power is quite overwhelming. Be you 57 years when it registers this Isolde, and a voice is not that of the young woman, but a ossia fill to be able to and can. These works to be able to well in Law I, and in an opening of Law II, still astonishingly enough, can voice a sheer lyricism and tenderness for a duet of amour. These two infamous big C east (which has been distributed for Elisabeth Schwarzkopf) is of any worry anything and I can not comprise reasons has created such the fuss. EMI Can has to that the left was altogether --- is of period very short, and is not of entity (Helen Traubel, the one who has sung countless Isoldes in a Praise after Flagstad start, has not sung never these two upper notes!), Especially in a light of Flagstad monumental voice like the whole. And the one who the voice was! A half and more low row has had of this time taken on a autumnal beauty that has to that experienced more than has described. Ludwig Suthaus' Tristan, While perhaps any in the tall level of his partner, is this in spite of excellent in his own terms. His flange is sure, lyrical when necessary, and certainly quite powerful when I need to be, especially in Law III. Near, he and Flagstad sing a Duet of Amur unforgettable. Blanca Thebom
Was a half American of the promise adds, and his youthful Brangane resupply contrast it well with Flagstad mature Isolde. Besides, his flange of an Opinion in a half of a Duet of Amur launches the only wave of him is adapted. A rest of a mould of support, especially a Dietrich Fischer young-Dieskau, is everything acceptable. But some treasures this together wonderful for a combination of Flagstad and Furtwangler, and is the combination concealed there is still to be surpassed. Personally, this register, I so that it adds so it is, would have to be completed for Karl Bohm version, which is entirely different, this in spite of is way , each one has bitten like effective. An end thought --- with a Isoldes of Flagstad and Nilsson, so much that to to still stand likes two more add of dramatic sopranos of a Twentieth Century, brave and courageous is a soprano the one who risks to be compared with any of them!

Personally, a definite personification of Isolde in Kirsten Flagstad. A master, @@@titan and intellectual manager of Wagner music, Wilhelm FurtwÀngler. An add that it registers that calm take you to a mystical and mythical world of Richard Wagner laws of music, Tristan und Isolde. Besides any comparison, one of some works of art more are has based in a greeting of idealised and unconventional Amour by means of Death.

Wagner Was one of the pocolos composers to dip the music the history of good-looking tragic amour of English and Irish history of some Dark Ages. He this with eminent emotional accomplishment, and in this register of a work is beauty is developed.

This neighbour is more Anthony and Cleoptra that Tristan und Isolde. While an orchestra that the touches is gorgeous, without the doubt, does not have the clue of eroticism among a two -be of the lovers - those who touch more like your grandparents that possessed and obsessed youngsters clandestina truants. A sound has registered wonderful for a period, Walter Law has produced some amazing register around this time, with smoothly paced that directs of Furtwangler. But, that is this work of music all roughly? Considering Wagner the own passions at the same time write it, is surely more heart-on-boss that is a chance here. Roger has read Scruton is 'the Dead heart consecrated' to see that I bad. Oddly, Perhaps, Karajan Bayreuth record with Modl (in Orpheus) taking more afterwards to a heart of this work that does this Furtwangler register - Modl when being quite extraordinarily sensuous, especially in Law III. A sensuousness totally that lacking of of Flagstad for some times records this: nobility, sure, but concealed is not that a music is roughly.

This complete emission a Big/has Found register of a cycle of Coverage, ten years in a doing. It is one exceptional tarpaulin , that again shows Big capacity to @give a structure of Wagner long musical arches while constantly drawing out of details by heart and expression that aim a work. In of the Big hands, an orchestra does not accompany or drive a work to the long of: his sound is part of the cloth of an action, an air some characters breathe. One a lot in general can be slow but there is not any lack of tension or movement of before. One has Found produces the rich, textured his, full of energy and colour; some climaxes, when they come, is overwhelming. This is matched for some singers' relish of a verbal text. A result can have less superficial emotion that some classical register but deeply is in satisfactory. Big is one of an add Wagner managers of a stereo was.

Wagner I singers today are thick data grudging praise for reviewers (particularly here on Amazon!), Or the only writing was like this inferior to those of a 50s/60s Golden age'. Well, has some exceptional actions here.

Simon O'Neill is the first-record Siegfried: tireless, and unfailingly attentive, with pleasing it, youthful tone. These are subject subjective , knows, but prefer his voice (and his use of him) to this of a throaty Windgassen (Solti and Bohm) or a dry-toned Thomas (Karajan). Joy his action so as those of mine favourite Siegfrieds - Jerusalem (Haitink and Barenboim), and Remedios partorisca Goodall. Heresy to say this, knows, but is a lot of-distributed with Wagner tenors right now: Gould is very better that reviewers here often suggest, and is so only sad that both Kaufmann and Skelton, excellent both, has done clear is not planning to sing Siegfried time very punctual, if never.

Gerhard Siegel‘s Mime takes powerfully a character malign, obsessive energy: much more disturbing, for example, it Stolze pantomime grotesco partorisca Solti. Paterson Presents the nuanced, finely the wanderer sung: it comprises that a character is not never a master of chance here (averts to win the opposition in Acting One with a patient-nano educated!) But it can summon the vocal power when required (for example, in Law Three). Rachel Nicholls' Brunnhilde Looks less a lot of-coached in Big differential approximation: he less words that some another, but this in spite of gives the vibrant and action of the heart felt - and has some upper notes, also. A first-record Alberich, convincing it Fafner, the strong ageing Erda, and the a lot of Woodbird complete a mould.

Of course, would not want never be without Nilsson that thrill Brunnhilde (with Bohm, any Solti, for preference): his technical mandate of a function is probably state very surpassed of then, although I prefer a heat More adds them of Dernesch (Karajan). A lot they seasoned the auditors will want to know that Paterson compares with a ‘add' Hans Hotter likes Wanderer. Heresy Again, knows, but create Hotter (Solti and diverse alive register) was miscast like this Wanderer: his air of nobility wounded was quite in odds with some questions of this compromised character, and remote sound too old – the wanderer still is eating apples of Brakes to arrive to this point of a cycle! I prefer Paterson – and, in his different ways, Stewart, Morris, McIntyre and Tomlinson.

The approximation of the main of age, with his clear hinge of musical detail, a lot desquels can be lost in of the most driven actions, this those registers that it will resist it has repeated to listen. It can seat beside a rich variety to contrast registers for Karajan, Bohm, Goes and Barenboim, among another. A quality of his excellent east, and there is almost any noise of audience: so only the little chuckles in Siegfried dodgy reed-touching, and applause in an end of a work. On balance, prefer it to a recent Naxos subject, in spite of some strong vocal actions there, to a large extent in thanks to Big differential approximation and a conviction with that is rid. Highly recommended.

Has something special roughly emi-staged' or basically actions jointly of works. Possibly originally conceived to save money, have now result populate looked for after the incarnations because an orchestral sound is not hid under the phase but, especially in a chance of Wagner, each one which lush sonorous the element is listened. Some singers are defined clearly, possibly a lot always his advantage. North of the work is quite sensational the coverage has has won admirers all oevr a country and has compared well to staged the actions have listened houses of work of Seattle to Covent Garden.
Ossia One of a better this in spite of and certainly a cream of a Cycle of Coverage to Find splendid. I have listened to one Finds paralizaciones in means the century and no of a golden age of Barbirolli has has achieved such the @@@zenith.
This Siegfried blew was - is not quite like this refined to the equal that say Solti, Barenboim or my personal favourite Janowski, but has your wrist that careers and is spent enough has gone by a white hot intensity of one touching. Simon O'Neill is to glorious sweet Siegfried. The mine there is so only a Brunhilde - Birgit Nilsson - of course has another - I are to be so only provocative - but does not like me warblers - Rachel O'Neill has trill he of light but sings a part with such passion and musicality that is has spent easily for big. Some other singers are excellent but a star is Big and an orchestra and I was in a flange of my chair, listening the new elements of one value as it has thrilled.
Absolutely splendid - no first election but like this enjoyable and exciting to listen to.

I have bought this register so only partorisca a Wesendonck Lieder with Gerald is on some the better versions can take with the piano for real maravilloso.un Wagner arias in a disk is good versions but perhaps any one a More adds them can take you with Flagstad.

Still Wagner the lovers and the lovers of flange adds, this CD surely recommends . An auditor is presented with Kirsten Flagstad, 1895-1962, embroiders five ‘bleeding chunks' of TannhĂ€user, Siegfried, Götterdammerung and Tristan und Isolde, in of the actions of one 1948-51. At any rate an orchestra is a Philharmonia. There is also to 1948 action of a Wesendonck Lieder with accompaniment of piano for Gerald Moore, 1899-1987.

A date of registers of the period when a singer was in a height of his powers. Extraordinarily, so only it sings his first Wagnerian function, Elsa in Lohengrin, in an age of 34 and, in a summit of his popularity in Amsterdam, the house returned in Norvegia in 1941 to spend some years of war with his husband. She so only resumed his public actions like Isolde in the Stairs in 1947.

Here listen the prayer of Elisabeth of TannhĂ€user [registered in 1948, with Issy Dobrowen, 1891-1953, that directs], ‘Ewig war ich' of Siegfried, 1951, with has Put Svanholm, 1904-64, and Georges Sebastian, 1903-89, that directs], a Immolation Scene of Götterdammerung, 1948, with Wilhelm FurtwĂ€ngler that directs] and two excerpts of Tristan und Isolde, registered in 1948 with Dobrowen - Isolde Narrative and Curse, of Law I, with Elisabeth HĂ”ngen, 1906-1997, and a Liebestod.

The majority of these excerpts is available elsewhere but this a lot-fill, 75'10, CD is the joy for the number of reasons. Of course it offers another occasion to listen to an incomparable dramatic soprano and experience a radiance, flexibility and expressiveness of a voice, nowhere better aimed that in a duet with Svanholm, his preferred heldentenor. Less powerful of Lauritz Melchior [but the one who has not been?] His hinge and the sensibility perfectly match that of his partner. In a Immolation scene of the commentaries a summation of a Cycle of whole Coverage and sees Flagstad BrĂŒnnhilde like the woman more than Wotan daughter. Here it is FurtwĂ€ngler accompaniment that fully matches an intensity of a flange.

Was unaware of any Dobrowen or Sebastian and both treat well although, of course, is Flagstad voice that resplandores especially. A TannhÀuser excerpt is finely nuanced and exquisitely phrased, whilst, joined for Elisabeth Höngen, Flagstad expresses Isolde tricks ironic and then sinks to articulate a deeply serious curse. These advantages to a Liebestod that seldom can be be sing in the more heartfelt way. Dobrowen The accompaniment is ravishing.

A Flagstad voice, surely unmatched in dramatic intensity until Birgit Nilsson, is restrained in a Wesendonck-Lieder where an advantage to balance a piano. Here, the difference of an orchestral version more familiar that later Flagstad and Knappersbusch registered [in a Decca the legends that records there is the charming photograph of a singer in an end of his life], is an inwardly expressive emotion that suffuses a music. Moore È like this sensitive a accompanist like this never.

A digital transfers everything does justice to a quality of a flange.

A leaflet contains three separate tests, for André Tubeuf [French], Alan Blyth [English] and an anonymous German text. Some signals last was some of some other Scandinavian singers that has dominated Wagnerian register, Christine Nilson, Sigrid Arnoldson, Babysitter Larsen-Todsen and Kerstin Thorberg, to that adds Melchior, Varnay, Nilsson and Nina Stemme.

Some points have underlined here is in fact some ask more reflective, a Wesendock lieder, really fantastically felt, and the prayer of Elizabeth of Tannhauser, a lot affecting in his simple delivery. A Siegfried excerpt is taken of the much more scene, so only available, looks, in the together of 4 disks (His Introuvables of the Coverage), and Tristan excerpts is really dry is announces a together complete of the few years later. Altogether, The studio adds of Flagstad in the voice adds.

Ossia A fine plus Gotterdammerung has not registered never. Also it boasts a fine plus Brunhilde in Rita Hunter, yes is well in a very upper comprising all these famous names ( some of them out of tune and shouting) of one was of war of the estaca. Gentleman Goodall way with a bookmark for real is exciting, in fact take the Part of real Funerals in place of an usual paving quickly run this in spite of with an orchestra that touches too many strong all immediately. It listens to like this it builds a Immolation scene with a diminishing and growing with which another. I want to Goodall is way a lot classical with a bookmark, has the tentativa deliberate to clear texture. It is really amazing!

With which Karl so only Elmendorff is a test of time; to the equal that can launch your Solti, Karajan, Bohm, Knappertsbusch, Furtwangler and to the in a cube!!

In that lived he with Wagner fanatic in fact a lot of years have the data sustains at the beginning a Coverage but after the little listenings has come partorisca appreciate that Wagner was roughly. It liked always Green & Puccini but Wagner is in of the different plan altogether. Some four conjoint CD that marks on a Goodall the coverage is in my opinion that stuns. Rita Hunter and a rest of a mould was in a cup of his game and Reginald Goodall is directing is surprising. Different Solti (that it would have to be it mine another recommendation ) the one who drives some works on in the quite lick it, Goodall the time throughout finds that little something extra inside a bookmark.

Honradamente Think that this can be a better action of this work officially. The purists will object immediately governs it out of yard to be in English. While I can comprise that ossia the king -sized objection for German-speakers, does not think it would have to that deter English-speakers, or that is, perhaps, equally comfortable in both tongues. A point is that, while Wagner the music is sublime, his libretti is quite say. It is not hard for the translation to be a real improvement in an original. For chance, Wagner was almost comically intoxicated the alliteration. In translation, that preserves his absurdly laboured the alliterations is (mercifully) impossible. It concealed it is not to say that this English text is ideal; he occasionally period operates it-speak, this lacking tongue in that a word "now" it looks every time a librettist need to fill the metre. Some positive points in this action, this in spite of, is numerous and overwhelming. Paramount is Goodall is directing. This can be a slower action of a work has registered, but a time does not look never laboured. A flow of a music is sustained throughout. Like this remarkable likes Goodall is directing is a flange of Rita late Hunter, which is comparison with that of any in a function of Bruennhilde, in any tongue (yes, comprising Flagstad, Varnay and Nilsson). Alberto Rimedi is among a better of war to stick Siegfrieds, easily outclassing Wolfgang Windgassen, the one who virtually has monopolised a function in of the German registers and Austrians for two decades. Aage Haugland Was clearly not singing in his first tongue, but his intonation and the diction are well. A mould has does not link feeble. A ENO the orchestra is not never be enough the Circles-Royce together, but was obviously a lot a lot assaid for these actions and tip the commitment to match that of some singers. There is registers more recent (in some German originals), boasting digital register, but any of this so much the action is the party for east a.

Does not leave a fact that this Coverage is in the English place were. It is registered alive, but calm would not know it never. His sound is terrific, and reason there is an audience, a chemistry among some interpreters in his functions comes by means of in his actions. To Rita Hunter likes Brunhilde is simply of glorious flange. This Green woman the flange was incredible also, a underappreciated soprano in my opinion. All a flange is uniformly well, how is this whole Coverage , and disagree that a time to direct is too slow. It spends a way, motives, and some the orchestral finals that touch a lot very in fact! Honradamente, Has a more highly the cycles of Coverage have estimated, but like this of now this one is well in a cup!
