Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"These are full-bore performances that take huge risks for the sake of aesthetic truth. The Overture to Rienzi that opens the disc is easily the most formidable and the most musical performance of the work ever recorded, and would all by itself be worth the price of admission. But the Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde is even better, a performance that surges and soars and finally expires in luminous shimmers. And the three excerpts from Gotterdammerung that conclude the disc are better yet, performances of Siegfried's Rhine Journey, Siegfried's Funeral March and Brunnhilde's Immolation that embody the epic tragedy and the ultimate ecstasy of the music in interpretations of searing intensity... anyone who loves Wagner absolutely has to hear this disc, whatever they think of Matacic. VAI's sound is deep, detailed and amazingly realistic." -All Music Guide
