Description
Having just bid a bittersweet farewell to the ebbing strains of Götterdämmerung in this season's complete Ring cycle broadcast live from the Met, we pounced on this new offering from their archives. Not only does this set contain the entire Ring cycle with immortals of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s like Kirsten Flagstad and Lauritz Melchior, but one is also treated to Tristan und Isolde with the same incomparable duo, as well as to Victoria de los Angeles, Hans Hopf, and Paul Schoffler in Die Meistersinger, Hans Hotter and Astrid Varnay in Der fliegende Holländer, Melchior and Varnay in Lohengrin, and Ramon Vinay, Varnay, Roberta Peters, and George London in Tannhäuser. These are some of the greatest Wagner singers of all time, heard live in their prime—often in roles they did not record in complete versions. And as we bask in the glow of these unparalleled performances, let us not forget the giants of the podium, including George Szell, Erich Leinsdorf, and Fritz Reiner (whom Richard Strauss called "a blessing for opera").
