Notes & Reviews:

"If you want a spectacular modern digital recording of Wagnerian orchestral excerpts, this is hard to beat..." - Penguin Guide 3 stars

"From the most exciting modern collection of Wagner's "purple patches" now in the catalogue...Then comes an exhilaratingly brilliant Ride of the Valkyries. Their steeds are not whipped to the point of exhaustion and they come into the final straight, heads held high and manes flying in the wind, drawing cheers from all." - Gramophone

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Henry Wood Hall, London (1991).
