Flagstad Recitals 3

Notes & Reviews:

The Third Volume Of The Flagstad Recitals Couples Music By Wagner And Mahler. Flagstad's Lp Of Wagner Scenes Recorded With Hans Knappertsbusch Is Complemented By The "todesverk++ndigung" From Act Ii Of Die Walk++re With Sir Georg Solti As Well As The "immolation Scene" From G+¦tterd+ñmmerung From A Norwegian Broadcast Performance Conducted By +ÿivin Fjeldstad. Also Included Are The Two Mahler Song Cycles Flagstad Recorded With Sir Adrian Boult And The Vienna Philharmonic. In His Booklet Notes John Steane Asks Us To "remember (for It Is Easy To Forget) That In This Recording We Hear The Voice Of A Woman Over 60. It Is Still Possible To Feel, As Desmond Shawe-taylor Did When Hearing Her Years Earlier In A Concert Performance With Furtw+ñngler, That The 'sumptuous, Saturated Tone-quality Of This Sort Has Almost Vanished From The World'."
