Notes & Reviews:

An outstanding 6 CD set for the Wagner fan in all of us!

"They don't make Wagner singers like that anymore" - "There has never since been a Heldentenor to match Lauritz Melchior". Here's the perfect opportunity for listeners to find out for themselves: A stunning array of majestic sopranos (Flagstad, Nilsson... ), resplendent tenors (Melchior, Lorenz... ), and dark-toned baritones and basses (Hotter, Schorr, Greindl... ) guarantee true Wagnerian excitement. All the major operas - with many favorite choruses - are represented here, including the entire Act! of Die Walkure (with Maria Muller, Wolfgang Windgassen and Josef Greindl under Ferdinand Leitner, 1951). Recordings date from the 1920s to the 1970s, with many documents from Bayreuth Festivals.
