Notes & Reviews:

This disc includes the essential orchestral works from Wagner operas. Soprano Anja Kampe, who specializes in Wagner roles, has come to international prominence in recent years with leading roles planned in all the major opera houses. She is an artist with a proven pedigree and an immense career ahead.

BBC Music Magazine
Elder... and the Hallé... make the prelude to Mastersingers Act III and the Parsifal music splendidly burnished, glowing affairs, while the Flying Dutchman's storm swirls with Klemperer-like impact.

Gramophone Magazine
The Meistersinger Act 3 Prelude makes use of "period" string portamenti... while the same opera's Act 1 Prelude and the Tristan excerpts show clear touches of Elder's work with original instrument bands... for the sake of increased mobility and presence of important inner part writing. Anja Kampe is a clear, word-conscious, passionate Isolde, closely in tune with the "house style" of these interpretations, while the final pages of this Liebestod (after the voice finishes) are attended to with a Boulez-like detail and fascination.
