Notes & Reviews:

"The subtitles may be naff, but this is music of genius, knitted together to make a plausible symphonic sequence. The orchestral highlights are here — the overture and the great Act III prelude — and the portentous Masters and boisterous Apprentices are brought vividly to life without singing." -The Sunday Times

Neeme Järvi conducts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in the fourth album of their critically acclaimed Wagner series. This disc features Wagner's popular comic opera, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, his overture to Columbus and Eine Faust-Overtüre as well as (thanks to the hard work of composer De Vlieger) the completed Entreactes tragiques. Classical music rarely finds such gems as this growing collection. The perfect gift for the Wagner fan.
